MISSION CAPSULES: Our gifts to Presbyterians Sharing ... support St. David's Inner City Outreach Ministry in Hamilton, Ontario as it reaches out to children, youth and families in Hamilton's downtown core. This area of Hamilton is bleak, with high levels of drug abuse, alcoholism, prostitution, gangs and violence. St. David's provides local children with a safe space where they can feel like they are part of a community, share a meal together, and find people who will treat them as equals. The Rev. George Beals writes, "With the support of Presbyterians Sharing and other churches, we are now taking knives away from the children and putting a basketball into their hands. And we are seeing the community change. There is a new hope, the rebirth of a community".

Dear God, can you really do everything? I wish I could to... Marvin

Dear God, I saw Saint Patrick church last week when we went to New York. You live in a nice house, Frank

Dear God, Last week it rained three days. We thought it would be like Noah's ark, but it wasn't. I'm glad because you could only take two of things, remember, and we have three cats. Goodbye now, Donna
