November 7: BHPC Seminary Intern Nachee Miller, “Missions to Kenya.” Nachee has undertaken several mission trips to Kenya. He will be sharing his experiences using a slide show of the work he has done and the people he has met. Nachee currently serves as the Moderator of the Mid-Atlantic Synod of The Presbyterian Men; through his affiliation with this organization, the Kenya Mission was sponsored. The mission trip was also made possible through The Presbyterian Men’s affiliation with the Outreach Foundation.
Nachee Miller is a third-year Master of Divinity candidate at the Howard University School of Divinity. He is a retired US Army Officer and small business owner in the District of Columbia.
November 14: Rabbi Sunny Schnitzer, Bob Deans, Director for Strategic Engagement of the Natural Resources Defense Council, and Joelle Novey, Director of Interfaith Power and Light (DC.MD.NoVA): “Think Globally, Act Locally.” For Interfaith Sunday, these experts will lead a discussion about what we can all do in the short term to address climate change in our own lives and communities. We will focus on short-term actions we can take to reduce our personal carbon footprints and advocacy we can participate in to encourage local governments to undertake responsible programs and policies.
November 21: Elizabeth St. John and Bonnie Holcomb: “Alternative Giving at Bradley Hills – Pandemic Year 2.” It’s the time of year when we consider a variety of alternative holiday gifts that honor our friends and family, reinforce our mission activities, and support those in need both locally and around the world. Join our experts for a discussion of your many options and a review of the (again this year) on-line giving process.
November 28: Tanya Vitusagavulu, Maryland Director, Refugee and Immigrant Services, Lutheran Social Services: “Welcoming the Newest Washingtonians.” The fall of Afghanistan to the Taliban in August imperiled the Afghans (and their families) who had supported the US presence there over the last 20 years. Tens of thousands are now awaiting resettlement in the US. Lutheran Social Services coordinates that process in the Washington area, and once again, BHPC is an active partner working with them to help those refugees begin to rebuild their lives. Join us for a lively discussion of how the process works, what our congregation is doing, and most of all, how you can help.
