Well, actually--we received a grant that is just shy of $5000.Â HW applied for a Crossing Bridges grant through the Saint Paul Area Synod for a project called Humble Walk Summer Homework. And we got it! There are plenty of small (and hefty) home maintenance projects in this neck of the woods that individual home ownersÂ are not able to do. Painting, repairing, cleaning, etc.Â Some of us are overemployed, some have health concerns, some are single parents. The list of factors is long and varied.
So, Humble Walk is organizing a community work weekend (June 4-6) where together we will swing hammers, wield paintbrushes, chat over coffee, wrangle kids, enlist volunteers and generally make some noise around here. We'll need you! The $5000 will cover a very part time position (project coordinator) and buy some supplies. We are entirely grateful and honored to be recipients of this grant. It brings together our gifts of hospitality andÂ handyman-ness.
Come and worship with us this Sunday. New Epiphany liturgy for this season of sharing light. Plus, we welcome back the ever popular Drawing on the Text.
Merry Christmas. Happy New Year. Love abounds. Rev. Jodi Houge (who nearly always misspells Ephiphany. I mean Epiphany)
