Giving Thanks!

Princeton Presbyterians are giving thanks for a full fall! Below are a few of the people, programs, and opportunities we are grateful for so far this year.

  Breaking Bread   Breaking Bread is the worshipping community of Princeton Presbyterians that meets weekly around the Lord's Table. We enjoy creative worship that is grounded in the Reformed tradition. It is amazing to see God's faithfulness as we sing, pray, and encounter God's word together.

   Every 28 Hours  Performance and Discussion   Members of Breaking Bread and the Westminster Foundation board attended  the  Every 28 Hours  play festival at the McCarter Theatre  last month.  Every 28 Hours  is a collection of one-minute plays that began during the Black Lives Matter Movement following Michael Brown Jr.'s death in Ferguson, Missouri. The title derives from the statistic that an African American person dies by police use of force every twenty-eight hours in the United States. We met at Nassau Presbyterian Church a week later to discuss violence, racism, and inequality in America, and what habits we can practice to work toward racial justice.

  Laura Bratton on  Harnessing Courage    The Rev. Laura Bratton delivered an inspiring lecture at Princeton Theological Seminary about her recently published book   Harnessing Courage: Overcoming Adversity with Grit and Gratitude .  Laura is a PTS alumna, a Methodist pastor, a motivational speaker, and a coach for young people experiencing trauma. She teaches people how to draw upon “grit and gratitude” as part of the healing process. Princeton Presbyterians joined Laura and her guide dog, Betty, for a lively conversation after the lecture in the seminary’s Brick Café to talk about life and share cupcakes from the Bent Spoon.

Pre-Med Hospice Volunteers

Last week, Len, Andrew, and Julia had their first meeting with undergraduate students at Princeton University who visit patients and families at Ascend and Kindred hospice centers. These Princeton students are preparing for medical school, and they offer heartfelt care, kind presence, and a listening ear to persons in a tender season of life. Andrew and Len will meet with the “Pre-Med Hospice Volunteers” monthly to process and share their stories of care and visitation.
