“If You Want World Peace, Maybe Start with Sharing a Roll of Toilet Paper.”
The above headline was published in the Nashville newspaper, “The Tennessean,” in an opinion piece written by the Rev. Becca Stevens. It was hopeful and insightful in her own style. Click on any of these underlined words to read a PDF version of the article.

There are many great organizations out there doing incredible things during these difficult times:
Your Church is involved in the community and within our church for people in need. We can receive donations online at www.stbarnabasfbg.org!
The Needs Council is responding in many different ways within the community. You can make online donations by going to https://needscouncil.org/donate/
Also, many of us are familiar with the Rev. Becca Stevens from Thistle Farms. They are in the last two days of trying to match a gift made to them. More information about the campaign is located at https://charity.gofundme.com/o/en/campaign/thistle-farms3/thistlefarms?modified=1
IMPORTANT: The Benevolence Fund
The Benevolence Fund was created in December 2012 to give assistance to individuals who are going through a financial crisis. It is different from the Church’s Outreach Fund and the priest’s Discretionary Fundin that it is used to help the people of Saint Barnabas (members and attendees) while the other two funds are used primarily to help people and groups outside the Church.
During these times, people are experiencing extreme financial challenges. If you or someone you know finds themselves in need of help, please contact Steve Neale. Steve will be happy to provide a very simple confidential application with a quick response. Leave a message at the Church office ( 830.997.5762 ) or email Steve at email@example.com
