Welcome to Synod of the Pacific
Together We Triumph
2014 Jan Jam
By the Rev. Howard Dotson
Thank you to everyone who gave of your time and talents so we could be a blessing to 11 "Precious Starfish". One Starfish at a time.
Miss Cox, our teacher at Sparks Middle School asked one of our Jan Jammers how her weekend went, the student replied, with enthuasim, "Awesome!".
I am looking forward to our next gathering at Zephyr Point in April. The girls will stay in one of the cabins, with chaperones in adjacent ones plus the Tallac Center.
We have reached out to the Masonic Rainbow girls to carry forward with this project.
Hearing the girls giggle and run up and down the stairs was a good sign that the healing journey has begun.
To Christine, Colby and Jessica you are wounded healer ambassadors to this next generation. I hope and pray that some of these girls will follow in your footsteps.
