AFSC Heads Home for the Holidays

By Kathleen McQuillen, Iowa Program Coordinator

Home for the holidays. We hear that sentiment echo among others across radio stations and shopping malls. While commercialism threatens to rob the holidays of their truer spirit, there still lives within all of us the simple joy found in being with friends and family in a safe, warm, and peaceful place—Home.

Annual Service for the Feast of the Holy Innocents

Sponsored by the Des Area Ecumenical Committee for Peace, the service will include a theme of "weaving," and the liturgy committee would like to have people in the congregation actually knitting or crocheting during the service.   This is a special invitation to anyone who knits or crochets to be a part of the service in that way.  If you'd like to participate, please contact Eloise Cranke (515-262-5974), or just show up with your knitting/crocheting on that evening.
