This year’s offering will be donated to All Hands and Hearts, a highly-respected Massachusetts-based disaster relief organization, to be split 50-50 between efforts to restore the Northern Bahamas community of Marsh Harbor, the hardest hit of all the districts in that country by Hurricane Dorian last September, and the continuing work of reconstructing homes in Puerto Rico damaged or destroyed by Hurricane Maria in 2017. At our December 15 worship service, AH&H Founder and Director David Campbell—who lives in nearby Carlisle—spoke movingly about both these projects and about AH&H’s work at a number of other sites around the world.
Please give generously! –either by cash to the offering at all Christmas eve services or by check to Lincoln First Parish with “Christmas offering” in the memo line at any December worship service or by mail to FPL, P. O. Box 6218, Lincoln MA 01773.
