On January 4, 2015, our worship focus was on the Slaughter of the Innocents and the Holy Family's flight to Egypt as found in Matthew 2:13-23. We reflected on the ways in which the vulnerable are still threatened by those in power. During our Faithful Conversation, we took time to bless fleece blankets that were tied by our youth at their last church overnight. The blankets will be delivered to Domestic Abuse Intervention Services to give comfort to those fleeing domestic violence. Our prayers will be with those we may never have the chance to meet.
