Love Our Teachers

St. Ruth’s Circle is conducting a month-long donation drive Sunday, February 17 through Sunday, March 17, to benefit South Fork Elementary School students and their teachers, who often use their own money to provide for children’s needs.

Circle members are collecting children’s socks, baby wipes, hand sanitizer, tissues, travel-sized bars of soap, deodorant, toothpaste and toothbrushes and $10 and $20 Walmart gift cards to donate to the school.

Donations can be purchased online and shipped to circle members for delivery to the school using a shopping list on Amazon.com, https://stpaulswinstonsalem.org/StRuthsShoppingList. Donations may also be dropped off in the “Love Our Teachers” bin at the Goodheart Entrance. For information, contact Michelle Krell at mcanderson0509@email.campbell.edu.

Augsburg Homeless Overflow Shelter

St. Paul’s is supporting the Homeless Overflow Shelter at Augsburg Lutheran Church on Fifth Street by preparing and serving dinner on Tuesday, February 26 and Wednesday, March 13.

From December 1 through March 31, Augsburg opens its doors each night to provide a meal and shelter overnight for as many as 20 homeless men. Augsburg is one of five overflow locations in Winston-Salem and part of a broad coalition of churches, called City With Dwellings, which shelter more than 100 men and women on any given winter night.

Dinner volunteers provide an entree, side dishes drinks and desserts for 35 people, bringing their prepared food to Augsburg’s parish hall entrance at 7:15 p.m. and staying to serve the meal, leaving at 9:15 p.m.

The Path Between Us

Most of us have no idea that others do not see as we see, nor do they process their experiences in the same way we do.  That fact is especially crucial in relationships with partners, with friends or in our professional lives. Understanding the motivations and dynamics of these different personality types can be the key that unlocks sometimes mystifying behavior in others―and in ourselves.  The Path Between Us: An Enneagram Journey to Healthy Relationships by Suzanne Stabile guides readers into deeper insights about themselves, their personality types and others’ so that we can have healthier relationships.

This book is the text for a class, Relationships and the Enneagram, taught by the Rev. Sara C. Ardrey-Graves.

St. Paul’s Bookshop is open on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and on Sundays from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m.

Profits from the Bookshop support outreach at St. Paul’s.
