Beyond Our Walls/ Outreach at Holy Comforter
- Continued collaboration and service to the Relatives, who serve homeless youth and at-risk youth in three primary areas, the main house on East Blvd.; On Ramp, for those who have passed 18 and are no longer helped by social services; and a group home.
- The restoring of recycling at Holy Comforter. Working with the O'leary Group, you will begin to see blue and red containers with notices on them that tell you what can and cannot be recycled. This is a large learning curve for those who have thought that we were a recycling campus. We have not been for several years. See our booth at the Ministry Fair to learn more.
- Creation Circle at Holy Comforter. In addition to recycling, we will begin to explore the ways that we, as individuals, can stop the climatic damage that has been done to "this, our island home." Members of 350.org meet monthly at the church, They are a statewide group that promotes good and sometimes radical ways to effect change. We also will be introducing an every other month gathering of people for discussion, or movie and dinner to see what we can do to make changes in our lives. Those dates have not been set, but will be on a Thursday night every other month.
- QC Family Tree. We have seen the Jarrells in action, both music and vision. Our book group has studied one of Greg Jarrell's books. Now, we begin the integration of how we can assist them in their focus on social justice.........and how we can change our lives through the experience.
