~ Safenet Garden Tour - Shepherd's Cross participated in the garden
tour to raise funds for our local domestic violence intervention service,
Safenet, on Saturday June 5th.

~ The Northeast Oklahoma Rolling Workshop chartered bus tour
stopped by for a tour on June 29th. The Oklahoma Agritourism
Association meeting was held over lunch in the tour barn. It was a great
networking day, and a wonderful opportunity to visit with people about
Oklahoma's growing industry, Agritiourism.

non-profit organization. The nation of Mongolia lost over 90% of their
livestock last winter due to weather conditions. The purpose of this

Prayer cards are available at the shop.

The Living Nativity is here once again; that special time of year to reflect upon the gift of the "Christ" of
Christmas. Pete and I have been facilitating a Living Nativity in our community for 20 years. The years have flown
by. In retrospect, I am grateful that we have taken the time, energy, and resources to share with our community
the true meaning of Christmas, and I am grateful for a community that has helped to facilitate, with genuine
heartfelt understanding, the message of the "Christ" of Christmas. During the uncertainty of these timees, our
hearts are anchored in peace, knowing that one thing remains steadfast, the everlasting arms of grace and life
everlasting extended to us through that precious gift of Jesus Christ our Lord. We have only to embrace the truth
extended to us.
