A Coat for Miss Emma!

Archdeacon Bette & Emma West

It happened at the Interfaith Collective Leaders Meeting at St. Thomas' Tuesday evening. Miss Emma West mentioned to Karen Hayward that she needed a coat. Karen and Archdeacon Bette put their heads together, but it was Karen who thought of asking Marilyn Mahan.

And the rest, as they say, is history! Marilyn had two coats she had not worn in awhile and gladly offered them. Archdeacon Bette took them to a meeting at New Light Baptist Church Thursday evening and, yes, they fit! Perfectly!

That's how it works in Interfaith and the Family of God. Thanks Karen and Marilyn! Miss West is deeply grateful.
