"The following letter was sent on behalf of Good Shepherd Parish and the Christian and Jewish community of Wayland to the members of the Islamic Center."
 

December 2, 2016

To our Friends and Neighbors of the Islamic Center of Boston in Wayland,

We are writing in support of your congregation in the wake of the news of the hate mail you received yesterday.  We are very glad for your presence in our community and denounce such messages of hate.  We embrace you as a part of the diverse religious landscape of the town of Wayland and our nation. We are grateful for the many ways you participate in our community—from your recent hosting of the Wayland Interfaith Thanksgiving Service to your support for the Family Promise program and the housing of homeless families. You are neighbors whom we value.

As messages of hate and exclusion circulate, please know that we stand with you in support for your right to freely and safely worship in our community. We wish safety and many blessings upon your congregation.

In peace,

Rabbi Katy Allen, Ma’yan Tikvah-A Wellspring of Hope
Rev. Ted Crass, Community United Methodist Church
Rabbi Sally Finestone, Congregation Or Atid

Rabbi Douglas Kohn, Temple Shir Tikva

Stephen Ministry
 
When We Need God’s Love Most
 
When do we need God’s love most? Of course we need that love every second of our
 
lives. But at times God’s love is especially precious to us, times when we lose a loved
 
one or when life becomes so confusing that we do not know where to turn. At times like
 
these, it is very important to have someone who cares. Our parish has trained 10 Stephen
 
Ministers, lay people who offer a ministry of Christian caring within our parish and
 
beyond. 
 
To find out more about Stephen Ministry or to receive a Stephen Minister’s care, call

EXTEND THE INVITATION
 

“Come and see” was the invitation Jesus offered to a few men of Galilee who were interested in knowing more about him – who he was, where he lived, what his teachings were about? This same invitation we extend to adults who have not been baptized or who have been baptized in another faith tradition but are interested in the Catholic faith or adults who have not received First Holy Communion or Confirmation. Please share this invitation with family members, neighbors or friends. Questions? Contact Sister Roberta at rrzeznik@goodshepherdwayland.org or 508.650.3545.
