Heartland Community Church went all out with their shoe theme. In addition to having a sermon series about shoes, they had table top shoe decorations filled with fresh flowers all around the church. My favorite display was a huge sign spelling out “SHOES” made with…actual shoes!

Last night we participated in the joint NoBlurr, Soles4Souls event. You can relax, Wayne, Allan and I didn’t sing (although Tiffinay could have). Instead, we listened to the group sing, as well as share about the mission of Soles4Souls. People were invited to turn in pledge cards showing their support. Many people paid $10.00 to buy shoes for a family of four. Other options included paying $20.00 to give shoes to 8 people in need. One woman decided to use the shoe donations as a Christmas gift. Instead of buying her four nieces “regular” gifts, she purchased five pairs of shoes in each of their names. What a way to teach compassion and caring this holiday season!
