October Monthly Mission Market: Food Supplies for Newnan-Coweta Humane Society
In honor of St. Francis, patron saint of the animals, the Outreach Committee will be collecting items and encouraging volunteers to help the Newnan-Coweta Humane Society during the month of October. Needed items include:
- Kitten and puppy food - both canned and dry
- Dog and cat food - both wet and dry
- Treats and more hard toys
- Milk bones any size any flavor.
- Soft treats as well. Kongs would be great. Also, femur bones are a huge hit with the dogs. Nylabones are good as well.
- Flea treatments or fortiflora
- General products like toilet paper, kitchen towels, cleaning supplies, cleaning cloths, dish detergent, Magic Erasers, and liquid laundry detergent.
Find ways that you can volunteer on the website, https://www.nchsrescue.org. Of course, there are always lots of cats and dogs looking for their forever homes!
Healing Voices Speaker Series
Sunday, October 20 at 4:00 p.m.
Join local author Juliet Cutler for a conversation about the transformative power of education for girls in Tanzania and the value of engaging in community beyond culture. Copies of her memoir, Among the Masai, will be available for purchase and a book-signing will take place following the event.
In 1999, Juliet Cutler leaves the United States to teach at the first school for Maasai girls in East Africa. Captivated by the stories of young Maasai women determined to get an education in the midst of a culture caught between the past and the future, she seeks to empower and support her students as they struggle to define their own fates.
Cutler soon learns that behind their shy smiles and timid facades, her Maasai students are much stronger than they appear. For them, adolescence requires navigating a risky world of forced marriages, rape, and genital cutting, all in the midst of a culture grappling with globalization. In the face of these challenges, these young women believe education offers hope, and so, against all odds, they set off alone―traveling hundreds of miles and even forsaking their families―simply to go to school.
Twenty years of involvement with this school and its students reveal to Cutler the important impacts of education across time, as well as the challenges inherent in tackling issues of human rights and extreme poverty across vastly different cultures. Working alongside local educators, Cutler emerges transformed by the community she finds in Tanzania and by witnessing the life-changing impact of education on her students.
Juliet will also be the guest preacher at our Sunday morning services that day.
