MISSION CAPSULES: Inspired by God's promise of abundant life, PWS&D envisions a sustainable, compassionate and just world. On February 7th - PWS&D Sunday - we reflect on the work our church is doing to help vulnerable people across the globe to improve their quality of life and create positive, lasting change in their communities. Programs in international development and emergency relief are helping women, men and children rise above poverty and disaster and access basic necessities like nutritious food, clean water, adequate health care, quality education and basic human rights. Through support of individuals and congregations and in collaboration with global partners, we respond together to make the vision of abundant life a reality.

AND FROM PHYLLIS DILLER:

"Whatever you may look like, marry a man your own age. As your beauty fades, so will his eyesight."

"Housework can't kill you, but why take a chance!"

"Cleaning your house while your kids are still growing up is like shoveling the sidewalk before it stops snowing."

"Best way to get rid of kitchen odours: Eat out!"

"The reason women don't play football is because 11 of them would never wear the same outfit in public."

"I want my children to have all the things I couldn't afford. Then I want to move in with them!"

Have a good week - MB
