Is your church helping folks prepare for winter?

Is your church helping folks prepare for winter?

Still captured from TWCNews video TWCNews video

St Paul’s Episcopal Cathedral in Buffalo, under interim dean Rev. Will Mebane, has created a “Garden of Warmth” for people who need gloves, hats, and other cold-weather gear. St Paul’s was also in the news earlier this year when offerings began showing up at their installation of a homeless Jesus sculpture. Their Garden of Warmth is set up behind the sculpture, and is free for visitors to walk through and take the items we need.

TWCNews reported on the effort: you can see the video and read a transcript on their site.

What is your church doing to help prepare folks for the winter ahead? Do you partner with outside groups, or host resources locally?

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
