I can't believe that we have already finished the first month of 2012! We have been working hard here getting ready for an awesome spring! We have some fabulous events coming up in the next few months and we hope that you will join us! We still have a few spaces open at our wonderful women's retreat. I highly encourage you to sign up today if you have not yet had the chance! Also, we are thrilled to invite high school students to join us for a bowling and movie extravaganza! If you have high school students encourage them to come out, get to know students from different faiths and have a great time bowling together! There are also several community events happening, so don't forget to read the side column to see how you can be involved in interfaith events in Houston!
I also want to let you know that after this month we will be suspending the Interfaith Relations Newsletter and moving to a different newsletter format that will inform you about everything going on at Interfaith Ministries--all in one place!! We hope that you will decide to be involved in many different aspects of our work here at IM. So, this will be my last newsletter, and I want to thank all of you for your support, reading, and kind comments you have shared over the past couple of years. Keep looking for information about our interfaith offerings--they are only going to get better! Blessings to you.
