Scentsy wick less candles, Grace Adele purses, Avon makeup, home made soaps, Tupperware, home baked goods (to raise money for a mission trip to India)...colors danced about the room as the Christmas spirit filled hearts. The only bummer was the event was not permitted to be advertised publicly, though the local paper desired to do so. "The One Stop Christmas Shop" was the place to be this past Saturday, in the Northern California river delta!
We are sisters in Christ, one in the body of Christ! And we work together to help support our families and eachother!
For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ. For in one Spirit we were all baptized into one body—Jews or Greeks, slaves or free—and all were made to drink of one Spirit. But as it is, God arranged the members in the body, each one of them, as he chose. If all were a single member, where would the body be? As it is, there are many parts, yet one body....But God has so composed the body, giving greater honor to the part that lacked it, that there may be no division in the body, but that the members may have the same care for one another. If one member suffers, all suffer together; if one member is honored, all rejoice together. Now you are the body of Christ and individually members of it. (1 Corinthians 12:12, 13, 18-20, 24-27 ESV)
