We at Shalom Community Church strive to fulfill a vision of shalom, to embody the love, compassion and justice of Jesus in our personal and community journeys. Without exception, all who share this vision are welcome to participate in the full life of the church. We value the creative tension and the strength that result from sharing differences in beliefs within the community and we are committed to pilgrimage peacefully, simply, together.

The Sloth Song
You've seen me move.
You've seen me move, or have you?
Or have you seen, have you seen me move?
I have found, I have found
Another way to get around.
"The Sloth Song" is a creation of the Anabaptist Bestiary Project, a rock ensemble from Bluffton University that explores the spirituality of creatureliness. It's directed by Shalom's Trevor Bechtel, who doubles as a professor of theology at Bluffton. Learn more about the Project's recent CD and listen to "The Sloth Song" here. The sloth is a creature that has found a peaceful way of living in the world.
Faces of Faith
You and your family are invited to participate in the next FACES OF FAITH event sponsored by The Interfaith Round Table of Washtenaw County. FOF allows you to meet people from your community who pose as "books" telling you the story of their spiritual journey. Each time you "borrow" a "book" you learn about a different spiritual practice, religious belief, or turning point of faith. Last year's books included Buddhists, Hindus, Muslims, Mennonites, Atheists/Humanists, Baha’is, Native Americans, Quakers, New Thought Christians, Protestants, Mormons, Catholics, Jews and Eclectics. This year some will be returning and others will be added. $5 suggested donation per person or family.
WHEN: Sunday, January 12, 2-4 pm
WHERE: Zion Lutheran Church, 1501 W. Liberty, Ann Arbor
