Prison Visitation Program!

Are there members of your congregation incarcerated at Taycheedah?
On the third Saturday of each month, Madison-area Urban Ministry sponsors a FREE
 bus trip for children who are visiting their moms. 
Caregivers are also invited to attend, if they are able. 
(The only requirement is that both the > child and the caregiver must be on the mom's visiting list, and MUM needs to> know their names about ten days in advance, for approval by Taycheedah.)
 Adult volunteers from MUM also videotape other moms reading stories to their children. 
 The DVDs are then mailed to the children along with the book and a letter from mom. 
The bus leaves from (the back parking lot off Hegg Ave)  Lake Edge UCC at 4200 Buckeye Road
at 7 am and returns to Madison by about 1:30 pm. 
Breakfast is served on the trip to Fond du Lac, and lunch is served on the trip back.
We can also pick up kids at the McDonald's off 151 in Sun Prairie.
Next trip is March 16Call MUM at 608-256-0906.

March 2013

Love keeps showing up during our Lenten worship. Love in our past, love in our present, love in
1 Corinthians 13. Today  I share one woman's response to our reflection on faith & love:
 
Love Is
 
Love shines bright as the sun, moon & stars.
 
Love will not forsake us.
 
Real, true love is genuine, unconditional, divine & runs deeper than the ocean.
 
To feel love is to be faithful, open-hearted & allowing our hearts to soften.
 
To forgive & be forgiven is a trait of love.
 
Love will not sneak up on us & hurt us from behind, nor will it kick us to the curb when we're down or feeling lonely.
 
Love is beautiful as the rainbow & necessary as the sunlight.
 
Through God & with God love is very possible.
