Sharing the Love!

The St. Paul’s Parish Life Team decided to get creative and make the most of this time while we’re social distancing.

As you’ll see in the photos, heart-shaped lawn stakes and signs reading “St. Paul’s Episcopal Church…Sharing the Love” were purchased.

A few hearts and a “Sharing the Love” sign are being placed in parishioners’ yards every few days. Each recipient receives a note encouraging them to “choose where love will grow next.”

This creative, but simple act has brought smiles to faces and encouragement during a time when both are much needed.
