Moving Forward Together: Make Us A Channel For Your Peace

We have been pulled apart as a nation. Talking with others can help heal those divisions.

Toward that end, the MPB Justice Matters Ministry is offering a new series of respectful and thoughtful conversations online via ZOOM. The program is called “Living Room Conversations”. No advance preparation is necessary. Simply bring a willingness to listen and learn from one another. We encourage you to give it a go! It is a wonderful opportunity to meet others from the MPB community during this time of physical separation from one another.

Please join us as we focus on that which unites us rather than that which divides us. You can sign up for single or multiple conversations.

Hope for the Holidays

Make Holiday Cards for Detained Immigrants
This is the 4th year MPB has partnered up with Casa de Paz to support our brothers and sisters in detention. Ring in the holiday season by creating cards for immigrants locked in ICE detention centers.  Let’s remind them they are in our hearts during this season of love, hope, and peace.

Casa de Paz will be delivering holiday cards and candy bars for each immigrant locked in Colorado’s detention center. These cards and candy bars matter and it’s a small act of kindness that we can all be part of. You can make these cards from the comfort of your own home! Please find the instructions here. Cards need to be received by Casa Dec 11. Casa de Paz is pairing each card with a candy bar.  Since the candy can only be purchased through the detention center, Casa de Paz will buy the actual candy.  If you would like to support this effort, donations for the candy bars can be made here.
