From Inside the Collar
Change is hard. Most of us find it difficult and challenging. And, we are inundated by it! The only thing constant in life is change. If its constant, why do we resist it?
Change is also beautiful. Remember in God's transformation of us, he saves the best until last.

Happy New Year! We welcome a new year’s opportunity to continue helping our neighbors in need. The next few months will be challenging for our friends at the shelter in Providence, as they can eat and sleep there at night, but are on their own after early breakfast. They need to be out by 7 am (except in extra-cold or blizzard conditions, when they can stay in through the day), and return for the night at 7 pm. Your generous donations help feed roughly 75 of the men for the long day when most of them are outside on the streets. Always they thank us for the “happy-face” bags they fill with so many good foods from our truck. Bless you for the love and the food!
