Many of you have probably heard of the Camino. The long name is the Camino de Santiago de Compostela. The translation of that is The way of St James. It is a pilgrimage route across Northern Spain, now very popular because of the movie “The Way”, but also very old. Nancy and Chip Cole traveled to Spain last fall and walked seven portions of the Camino in a group pilgrimage lead by Brad Berglund of Illuminated Journeys. The ‘real’ walk is over 400 miles needing at least 30 days and more likely 45. They experiences five regions of Spain, all of which have slightly different languages and cultures, as well as topography. Each of their seven walks were different and memorable.
For those who wish to come to the potluck dinner, please bring your own table settings and if your last name starts with A-J, please bring a main dish, K-R, a salad, S-Z, a dessert. Please RSVP to Nancy Joe Shaw.
The next Men’s Breakfast is Saturday, May 13 in the First Plymouth Commons Room. We begin at 8:00A with a continental breakfast and intriguing table talk followed by an enlightening speaker. We always conclude by 10:00A.
What’s in a name? Obamacare, Trumpcare, Ryancare ACA, AHCA, Obamacare 2.0, Obamacare Lite? During our May meeting, Sam Robinson, a Microsoft healthcare program consultant and FP member, will once again explain in simple terms the state of American healthcare plans without confusing us. Sam’s entertaining style and extensive knowledge always makes for a winning combination. The President said “Nobody knew health care could be so complicated.” Well, Sam knew, and he should have asked him. Now you can ask Sam at the last Men’s Breakfast until September.
Women who want to hear Sam should plan on arriving at 9:00A. They may wish to join Cindy Eley for breakfast at 8:00A at the Panera at I-25 and Hampden.

First Universalist Church and First Plymouth Church are pleased to announce the screening of our first locally made documentary “Marvin Booker Was Murdered.” This film documents the killing of Marvin Booker, “a homeless street minister” by Denver Sheriffs in the Denver jail. More importantly, the film introduces us to who Marvin Booker was as a human being through testimony of his family and people whose lives he touched. We are very fortunate to have the director Wade Gardner introduce the film. He and the family’s attorneys will join us in discussion following the screening. Please join us May 8 at 7:00P in Room 212 here at First Plymouth Congregational Church.
