VOICES OF GRACE WOMEN’S ENSEMBLE will be performing at Valley Bible Fellowship, 14251 Highway 128, (Across from the Fairgrounds office), Boonville CA 95415. On Sunday, August 25, in the morning worship. Service begins at 10:00 AM. For more info please call (707) 895-3212. Admission is free and all are welcome. The women’s ensemble “Voices of Grace” was formed in 2010 by Carole Hester. She wanted a place for these singers to be able to work on music and travel to churches and events to sing God’s praises. Hester explained, “We live to tell God’s amazing grace to others. There’s nothing more fulfilling than doing what God wants us to do and continue finding out what else we can do in life in service to others. We believe we should use our gifts. “In Christian theology, grace is a spontaneous gift from God to man that takes the form of divine favor, love and clemency. It is considered an attribute of God that is most manifest in the salvation of sinners. It is understood byChristians to be a free gift of an uncaused and overflowing love and mercy that is totally undeserved by humanity.” “Voices of Grace” strives always to represent a loving God to those who hear them sing. Sopranos are Charlene Larsen and Marla Bentien. Diana Ragan is alto. Hester sings second soprano. Featuring songs with great harmony, the ensemble sings old songs by outstanding arrangers set in today’s “sound,” as well as songs from current Christian composers, thereby offering a wide range of audience appeal. For more information about this group, contact any of the singers, or call (707) 463-1231 or (707) 391-6586.

A SAMPLE COMMUNITY RIGHTS BASED ORDINANCE FROM PAUL CIENFUEGOS’ TALK IN MENDO COUNTY
I'm sure some of you attended Paul Cienfuegos talk in Mendo County about communities challenging corporate personhood status rights by passing ordinances protecting communities from corporate crimes including pollution of community water and land, stealing homes from citizens and many others. I'm attaching a four page example of a community rights ordinance Paul Cienfuegos passed out at his lecture. I'm working on one to ban fracking in Mendocino County for the Ocean Protection coalition.
