The dog didn’t eat my homework, but the browser and/or WordPress sure chewed and swallowed my post 😩 Thankfully I wasn’t finished but it still set me back a long way. Earlier this year I began to re-read the Wheel of Time tomes. I’d never read the whole series, so I thought it was time. After […]

I am a Vancouver homeowner. No costs associated with the Employers Health Tax should be borne by Vancouverites in their property taxes. Like the proposed additional school tax, this is a tax initiative of the provincial government to reduce the wealth of homeowners. In this case, it affects all homeowners, including low-income families. The higher […]

Against the Grain

In the recently published  “Our Towns” authors James and Debra Fallows wrote of how  often one of the indicators of rebirth in a community is the presence of a brewery that produces local beer that contributes to town’s sense of identity and revitalization.  And in Oklahoma City such a brewery, the Elk Valley Brewing Company, […]

I had a great time at the Freedom Women’s Center teaching the ladies how to make little boxes out of used Christmas Cards. This is one of my favorite crafts to teach, because it’s not difficult to do, once you get the hang of it. It’s also not gooey — no paint, glue, varnish; no beads, glitter, macaroni, beans to spill all over the floor. The necessary tools are usually at hand: pencil, scissors, straight-edge and used greeting cards. Transformed into a beautiful small box, the old card makes a lovely ornament and is perfect for gifting jewelry, cash, flower seeds or any other small item. (Note: I once made around 15 boxes to hand out at Christmas to the Sunday School Children. I filled them with a mixture of Skittles and M&Ms. The children informed me quite vehemently that one does not mix Skittles and M&Ms: either would be great, mixed together they are a disaster.) The request to lead a craft at the Freedom Women’s Center came at exactly the right time. I had been reading “Barking to the Choir; the Power of Radical Kinship” by Homeboy Industries founder, Gregory Boyle. Like his previous book, “Tattoos on the Heart,” “Barking to the Choir” is filled with stories that induce tears, laughter, and the desire to walk side by side with people who are doing the courageous work of turning away from crime and addiction into a newly restored life. Homeboy Industries Thirty years ago, Gregory Boyle, a Jesuit Priest was called to a poor parish in a gang-infested area of Los Angeles. With tag-lines like, “Jobs not Jails” and “nothing stops a gun like a job,” Homeboy Industries formed a silk-screen operation, followed by a bakery, cafe, tattoo removal operation, dinner, farmer’s market, catering … Now touted as the largest gang intervention, rehabilitation and reentry program in the world, the Homeboy Industries include life skills classes, job training, certificate classes, therapy, charter high school … Did I mention bakery? I ordered “Barking to the Choir” directly from homeboyindustries.org. It was a bit more expensive than Amazon, especially because I ordered a Kugelhopf Butter Cake to go with the book. A couple chapters into the book, when I was feeling that all these wonderful people are out there, who only need a hand up, and here I am doing nothing; I popped open the Homeboy tin and had a delicious slice of cake. Donating never tasted so good. I just checked the Homeboy website, because of course, I had no idea how to spell Kugelhopf. They have had such an abundance of orders, they are not taking any more food orders until after the New Year. There is still stuff available, however: apparel, kitchen things, umbrellas, bags 
 see homeboyindustries.org Teen Challenge The Freedom Women’s Center is one of five centers in Teen Challenge Monterey Bay. It’s antecedents go back to the late 1950s when a young country preacher, David Wilkerson, read about seven teenagers who were on trial for beating a man to death during a gang fight. Sensing God wanted him to help, he moved to Brooklyn, New York to work full time with teenage gang members. Teen Challenge’s inception is chronicled in David Wilkerson’s best-selling book, “The Cross and the Switchblade,” a terrific story. In the early 60’s a residential discipleship program for men was formed by Frank Reynolds, director of the Teen Challenge Training Center in Pennsylvania. His program became the primary model for Teen Challenge Centers worldwide. The first Women’s Center opened in 1967, through a donation by Tiffany’s president, Walter Hover. This fulfilled a long-time dream of also providing residential programs for females addicted to alcohol and drugs. The Teen Challenge discipleship  programs are discipline oriented with a balance of Bible Classes, work assignments and recreation. I think making Christmas Card boxes fell under ‘recreation,’ although the ladies worked plenty hard at it. You can learn more about our Monterey Bay programs at TeenChallengeMB.org. More Boxes On Saturday morning, I get to teach another small group how to make Christmas Card Boxes. We’ll be meeting at The Abbey Coffee Lounge, which is a wonderful gift to the community from Vintage Faith Church. If you happen to be there, come by and take a peek.
