One of my favorite theologian-practitioners, Mr. Fred Rogers, once said, “All of us, at some time or other, need help.  Whether we’re giving or receiving help, each one of us has something valuable to bring to this world.  That’s one of the things that connects us as neighbors — in our own way, each one of us is a giver and a receiver.”

There is so much truth in these words.  In this season of Easter, the Crawford Community has been both, givers and receivers.  Through connecting with our neighbors in Chelsea at Nueva Vida United Methodist Church, we were both:  we were able to share our abundance and we received the faithfulness and love.

Pam and Laura met with Pastor Mirna Concepcion de Rodriguez via Zoom about this gift.  At the end she offered this prayer.  In this, we are witnesses to the blessing of God both for our Crawford Community and for Nueva Vida UMC.  In this, friends, we are witnesses once more of Easter’s gifts of abundant grace, restored life and generous love.

“See” you on Sunday,
