January


 
One of the challenges of being in one ministry for an extended time period, for me it has been eleven years, is realizing the many ways that the ministry can be expanded; a wider vision…networking…giving voice to the voiceless…channeling the energy… …making the best choices. This past year confirms my need for new ideas and challenges. We did not meet last year's goal of painting and cleaning our office carpeting so it rolls over into 2013. I am adding colored pencils to our wish list to expand the possibilities for creative journaling. I am in the process of developing a format for a newsletter focusing on the written and visual work of the women and men that we serve. Included would be information about the ministry and community resources. So here is a salute to continued creativity and a clean office in 2013!

 

Wish List

 
            Jail rules for items we can give to those in need while incarcerated are very strict. The following are those things we can give and would greatly appreciate:
 
Small packs of colored pencils
 Composition notebooks for journaling
Stamped envelopes
Stationary items
Pencils
Current daily readings
Recovery books
Calendars
Reading glasses
 
We cannot give hygiene products, notebooks or calendars with spirals or other decorations. The wonderful selections of cards are greatly appreciated. It saves us hours of sorting time when the cards are slipped in the tops of each envelope and sorted into categories such as birthday, holiday, blank, sympathy.
 
Peace & gratitude,
Julia
