YEAR OF MERCY CHALLENGE
Subject: Veterans' Resource Center
Date: February 10, 2016
Dear Fr. Wilson,
I just wanted to thank you for opening up the 3rd grade’s service project to the entire parish. I truly felt like “the hands and feet of Christ” when I was dropping off the warm clothes for the homeless veterans. It was heartwarming to see the excitement on some of the men’s faces and to hear them talking about how wonderful it would be to have the warm clothing (and calling dibs on certain items J). There were about 7 homeless men who helped unload my car and one very grateful outreach coordinator overseeing the endeavor. The coordinator, Lisa, said it could not have come at a better time, as her shelves were almost empty and the cold snap was upon us.
We are blessed!
What does it mean to be a disciple in today’s world?
It's a fair question.
You know these people as responders – not just to some church need that may arise, but to their baptismal call. People who are intentional about making Jesus Christ first - and living out the Gospel message with their lives. This not only dictates who they are at church, but who they are when they leave this church.
Perhaps this describes you – or someone you know – or someone you might like to become.
All Saints continues the hard work of becoming a Discipleship Parish. We respond to a wide variety of needs - spoken and unspoken.
Come on along. A simple little ‘yes’ begins the journey.
Jesus calls us all to this life. Join us in our Mission ~
