On a mission

Local church teams up with non-profit to bring fresh water to those in need

Christ has no body now, but yours.

No  hands, no feet on earth, but yours.
Yours are the eyes through which Christ looks with compassion into the world.
Yours are the feet with which Christ walks to do good.
Yours are the hands with which Christ blesses the world.

-Theresa of Avila

BANGOR If you live in Bangor, chances are you've seen All Souls Congregational Church on the corner of State Street and Broadway. It's an impressive stone church, and provides one of the three steeples that reach up over the skyline that can be seen from many a vantage point in and around the city.

A fart in church

The other day I was having my hair relaxed. It's a long story with an even longer history, but the long and short of it is, I needed a relaxer. Limp and lifeless in August, I decided to give my hair a body perm at the end of the summer. Half way through this winter, I started to resemble a poodle who had stuck her paw in a light socket. As you can imagine, this particular style didn't especially become me.

Anyway, after I had the bonds in my hair broken and reforged by a lovely hair elf, I came back out to the front of the salon for my blow out. Though hard to pry my eyes away from my recently-relaxed reflection, I glanced at the chair beside me and froze in mid blow. There he was, my third grade Sunday school teacher, getting his hair did.
