5 of the Handmaids with their "Blue Cross"
which they crafted from broken glass
they gathered while cleaning up the smashed church doors.
They made a gift of their cross to the church.
I'm so impressed by their ability to seize a negative event
and turn it into something beautiful.
The doors appear to have been smashed by a somewhat desperate
drug addict hoping to find the Sunday collections.
Fr. Michael led the congregation in a prayer this morning
for this person's recovery from addiction.
(I do not believe that the person has been caught
although some people have now stepped forward
who saw the car )
