We Are Making Masks for Indy’s Vulnerable Neighbors
We have a rock star team already underway making masks for our community and those we serve. If you’re interested in helping with this project, please email Mother Erin at [email protected] The Rev. Jen Fisher, our Sunday Dinner Minister, is working with the team and she wrote this beautiful prayer our mask-making team will pray over the masks as a way of blessing them and their work. Perhaps this prayer will be meaningful to you as well:
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the ways in which I serve your kingdom might look different now; but I have within my hands the tools and skills to sew together courage, compassion and care for my community. Grant me the focus to keep on sewing when life itself seems held together by a single thread of hope.
Bless my hands as they work.
Bless my heart as it prays.
Bless my loved ones with good health and wholeness.
May the life that wears this mask be one that thrives.
May they feel your grace through every stitch, and may your healing love go with them through all of their days. Amen
A Word from The Neighborhood Christian Legal Clinic
Talk to an Attorney Tuesdays and Thursdays. Every Tuesday from 5:00 to 6:00 pm EDT, the Neighborhood Christian Legal Clinic is streaming a legal Q&A through Facebook Live. This series is called “Talk to an Attorney Tuesdays,” and it will include updates on how COVID-19 is affecting each area of law that they practice. A clinic staff attorney will begin with a brief legal presentation on the week’s topic (different every Tuesday), while one of our Spanish-speaking legal professionals interprets. Then viewers can submit questions in the comments on the Facebook Live post, and our presenters will answer them live. In addition to the Tuesday series, our Director of Immigrant Services will now host a separate, weekly “Talk to an Immigration Attorney” series on Thursdays from 5:00 to 6:00 PM, following the same format.
If you haven’t already, please follow the Clinic on Facebook, and stay tuned to be able to share their upcoming Facebook Live posts with your contacts.
