by Felicia Coleman June 15th, 2022   It was a defining moment in my life. I was a junior in college. Before class started, I was chatting with some friends and we were comparing who had gotten the least sleep that week. I “won” with nine hours over the span of three days. Once the professor commanded the attention of the room, we all turned to face the front as if we had just had the most casual “the weather is lovely today” type of conversation.... Read More

Gifts Given and Received

      by the Rev. Matt Addington   When St. Francis learned refugees were coming to Greensboro, it just made sense that we would get involved. The words of Teresa of Avila’s “Christ has no body but yours” repeated over and over in my head, combined with a calling to love God and love neighbor as self, saying yes was the easy part. Our yes, became a way to bring St. Francis together after so many had been away for so long because of... Read More
