Lessons from a Spinning Sheep

I loved it the first time I experienced it--the Children’s Nativity at UCUMC.  That first Christmas, I was newly engaged to be married.  My mind was racing with all the possibilities of life with my soon-to-be husband.  Those dreams now included anticipating the day when we might have a child who would be a sheep in this annual event.more...

Another Consignment Sale is Finished!

Another consignment sale is finished.  The clothes, shoes, and toys came and went.  I am left with an immense feeling of gratitude and strengthened faith. We were worried before this sale began.  Our volunteer numbers were at less than 50%.  How were we ever going to pull off taking in, organizing, selling, and cleaning up the massive amount of merchandise—much less fulfilling our mission of supporting families and children in need? more...
