As we approach this Season of special celebration – all connected with some aspect of Light, and Giving and Sacrifice – many of us celebrate the fullness of our lives, recognizing the help we have received in reaching this comfortable life many of us live. As we celebrate our good fortune, we can also reach out to help and assist others by assisting our Fellowship is preparing to be a Cold Night Shelter. We will open our doors to those needing shelter on assigned cold nights, providing a good meal and a warm, safe place to sleep. But it will also be a chance to meet, talk and socialize with people who may be in need, but people who can teach us in ways we may not be aware of. We can come in that night and talk, play games and just be there. We can assist as volunteers, and with the providing goods and funds needed to support this effort. There are many ways of helping, and as most know, when you do step out of your comfort zone, you gain more than what you feel you are giving. So please, think about ways you can help, not just in this specific endeavor, but in the many ways our Fellowship is reaching out. Come join in the Celebrations of this Season and help extend this season of giving of ourselves. If you are interested, please contact Rev Debs, myself or our Cold Shelter coordinator, Felicia Barr.
