Because It’s Cold Outside

snowBecause It’s Cold Outside

It’s the first snowfall of the season today.  I read an email about churches which provide emergency shelter for the homeless today.

Some say that it’s a coincidence. I consider it a call.

St. Christopher’s Episcopal Church in Springfield, VA provides overnight shelter to 30-35 homeless individuals for one week every year.  Every year it takes about 70 volunteers to provide meals and shelter for the week.

This year, their week is January 25-31 and we have been invited to help!

I don’t know many of the details, but if you would like to know more and may like to volunteer, please attend the training THIS Thursday, January 8, at 7pm at the church at 6320 Hanover Avenue in Springfield.

See you there! (And Blessed Epiphany!)
Pastor Jen
