MISSION CAPSULES: It was a leap of faith when members of Heritage Green Presbyterian Church said "yes" to a new and transforming vision: this church that had seen very few children in recent years dreamed of becoming a place where young families were welcomed and parents would be strengthened, encouraged and mentored so that they might feel empowered to raise their children in faith. The congregation ws invited to become the good soil that would receive and nourish new families with love, acceptance and faithfulness. And now new life is springing up everywhere! While the church is still in the early stages of the replanting story, everyone is excited to see what God has in store! Presbyterians Sharing ... supports Heritage Green in it's transforming ministry.

A nursery school pupil told his teacher he'd found a cat, but it was dead. "How do you know that the cat was dead?" she asked her pupil. "because I pissed in it's ear and it didn't move," answered the child innocently. "You did WHAT?" the teacher exclaimed in surprise. "You know, explained the boy, "I leaned over and went "Pssst" and it didn't move.!

It was the end of the day when I parked my police van in front of the station. As I gathered my equipment, my K-9 partner, Jake, was barking and I saw a little boy staring in at me. "Is that a dog you got back there?" he asked. "It sure is", I replied. Puzzled, the boy looked at me and towards the back of the van. Finally, he said, "What'd he do?"
