We Lutherans seem to think of angels dropping out of the sky, appearing in Bible passages and in works of art. Well, I’ve seen angels right here in Danbury, Newtown and New Milford! You think,” There she goes again”. So, where exactly did I see them?
I saw women bringing meals to a family in need. I saw a man bring a carload of food down to Daily Bread last week. I saw a woman offer a loaf of banana bread to someone who had done a favor for her. I saw a father participating in the Confirmation service. I see angels sewing masks for children as they prepare to return to school. Angels are all over. They are able to help others and they do so willingly.
Did you know that Daily Bread has a website:
dailybreadfoodpantry.com? Log on, if you will. And note that there is a Pay Pal account which you can use for donations to the food pantry. You can still drop food at church but they also need monetary donations. If you drive by St James Church in Danbury, you will see angels working there, too.
We distribute masks to people in the community as well as Food Banks through out the area. It seems like they don’t last forever.
Feel free to contact the church office if you need a mask.
