Gentle Reader,
The wedding party was just getting started, and already the wine was running low.  This was not good, not good at all.  It wasn't good for the hosts who would be embarrassed for not having enough.  It wasn't good for their friends who felt disappointed at the lack of wine and embarrassed for the hosts.  It was a train wreak in slow motion, but what could be done?  
This was not good, not good at all.  But as it turned out, the hosts had unwittingly invited exactly the right people to square this circle, and through Jesus and His mother something truly extraordinary was...brewing.  Just when you think the party is over, Jesus opens a new and wonderful chapter!  Come, Lord Jesus and be our guest... It may just change our lives!

New in the Library ... check it out!
"The Color of All the Cattle," the latest in the series Ladies Number 1 Detective Agency by Alexander McCall Smith, is now in our SPLC library!

In the book, Mma Ramotswe reluctantly tries her hand at politics.  Since the culture in Botswana, the setting for this series of books, is in many ways similar to the culture in Tanzania, these delightful easy reads are a great way to become familiar with our partners in Tanzania.
