From Inside the Collar
Fishing for People... we are not trying to "get" people, but to point to the presence of God. It is not our place to convict or convince or convert. It is our privilege to point to how we see God acting in love and power to bring new life: His Life. It is all about him, not about us. We cannot quantify our results, but rejoice in His.
We're in the forgiveness business, not the judgement business. Do what are our words say.
Loaves & Fishes RI
It’s a new year, but with some persistent challenges, including those faced by our friends at the Emmanuel House shelter. They welcome our well-stocked food truck, with the many good items you donate, and their thanks and good wishes are heartfelt.
Along with our regular items we are adding a new item on the signup genius for January and February, as a special opportunity to help provide comfort and ease the strain on those who must endure the cold days until the shelter opens. Starting now, we are collecting $5 and $10 gift cards for Wendy’s, Dunkin Donuts, or McDonalds, to deliver to Emmanuel House for Valentine’s Day. Cards should be marked with appropriate amount, sealed in an envelope marked “LFRI Valentine’s Day Gift Cards”, and placed in the offering plate, or given directly to Thomasine or Mimi before 5pm on February 13 when they will be delivered with our “Valentine’s Day” LFRI truck run — please refrain from leaving them in the LFRI bucket in the narthex.
Whatever we can offer, whether in prayers, time, food, clothing items, and/or gift cards, God blesses all of it, both in the giving and in the receiving! Thank you for your continued enthusiastic generosity for this ministry.
