Through a special gift to the church in 2015, the Community Advocate office started its work of mentoring and supporting friends and neighbors of our church who struggle with homelessness. The goals of the work are to provide mentoring, life coaching, and assistance in connecting with social service agencies, job opportunities, and healthcare. Several FUMCFW members offer friendship and support in a variety of ways to our neighbors in need. Once a person finds housing, the relationship continues, broadening the experience of community for everyone involved.

Mother’s Day may be the mother of great expectations in our culture. I read a funny blog written by a young mother voicing the things she fantasizes about when she looks toward that all special day. If you’ve been there, you know the wish list. Others face Mother’s Day with less humor.
A few years ago when I was teaching college students, one of my colleagues and I were laughing about excuses students gave for not turning in assignments. My favorite was the student who said she mistakenly mailed her essay in a letter she sent to her grandma overseas. My colleague and I agreed that teaching wouldn’t be so bad if it weren’t for the students.
