Church at Work

At church this morning, the Pastor Emeritus was conducting the service, since the pastor and his wife are on vacation.  We had a guest speaker who was talking about his church’s coming Thanksgiving.  This speaker told about a woman who called him who wanted to have a Thanksgiving dinner with her kids, but she did not have enough money.  The speaker said that his church ordinarily did not bring Thanksgiving dinners to people, and so he recommended that she try Catholic charities.  But then he decided to give her some of the leftover turkeys, and people brought her potatoes and other things.

That’s the church at work.
