Church Reconfiguration Live

On one recent Saturday, October 24, I had the pleasure of bringing 15 RUTGERS students there. They belonged to the crowd that so often has volunteered here at the church. This time, however, the University had organized a day not for volunteering but for listening to the voices of the community. So I gave a little presentation followed by Question & Answers.

Town Clock CDC

Some of the team attended our Groundbreaking Ceremony, and there is certainly an affinity to connect, especially for the survivors who will eventually be residing within the walls of Dina’s Dwellings. Wouldn’t it be special for the RU Women’s Basketball team to be visiting with our residents, inviting them to games, and the like? Wouldn’t these strong team players be wonderful role models to the women and children? Continue reading
