This Sunday we will continue our sermon series with a focus on the verse "Blessed are the merciful. Mercy is not always considered an august action, in the church however we value acts of mercy, generosity and kindness. On Sundays in the garden two of the last three have brought women who were barefoot and in need of shoes (sizes 8-9), and both times our beloved Connie was able to gift these women with the tennis shoes from her own feet! (Picture below) Yes, we are now keeping shoes in these sizes on hand in the garden and welcome donations. Though I have no doubt Connie would continue to be generous with her own feet if need be. Acts of mercy can be august, in fact when we pray for mercy from God that is what we are hoping for--a concrete impressive action. Join us Sunday as we explore mercy.
