CBCGB Team at Church of All Nations in Lewiston.  You heard them at our Head Light trip, too!
Thought you'd be encouraged by this article. We attended the memorial service it highlights, and it was packed with a wide array of community members...we saw some of our Christian friends, Jewish friends, and Muslim friends. A Muslim drummer, who Rabbi Dresdner introduced as "my dear friend", played drums with their worship band that accompanied the sung prayers and worship that wove throughout the service.

 As Lisa, the rabbi's wife, looked out on the growing crowd pouring in for the service, we heard her comment to someone in front of us that she was not expecting such an outpouring of love, and it overwhelmed her to tears. We heard that the nation saw similar wide response in other towns across the country at this last Friday's Shabbat services, just a week after the killings at the Shabbat service in Pennsylvania. God's love is stronger than hate! -Bruce & Jan, Hope House

  "People Matter Most" tells the story, in        song and pictures, of how the                      coronavirus  pandemic affected Hope        House in Lewiston, Maine.  A diverse         neighborhood rallies to share food and        other essentials, to get each other              through.
 Bruce's Mom, Lillian Willson, on her 92nd birthday   (May 25th) was honored with a drive-by parade from   her church family in L.A.  Lillian is beloved as a   Sunday School teacher to little ones, for decades.   She also helps us at Hope House whenever she visits.

This is Not Goodbye
 A song to comfort the many who've lost loved ones.  Dedicated to 2 faithful supporters of Hope House: Jan's mom, Eileen, and Chaoluan, wife of Pastor Pan. And thanks to Zac & Noah Willson for guitar work (Zac) & drums ( Noah). Song by Jan Willson, recording by Bruce.
"That's What Neighbors Do" is a sequel video to "People Matter Most".  It shows that being neighborly isn't just a "nice" idea.  It's what helps diverse families survive the hardships of 2020.  New friendships thrive, and helping each other becomes much more obvious.  All on College St. in Lewiston, Maine can see that's what neighbors do.
