Thank you for coming!

We would like to thank everyone who came yesterday to our Christmas Open House and Bazaar! The refreshments and fellowship were delightful. People were able to purchase Christmas presents for others and there were many pies going out the door! Our girls enjoyed singing Christmas carols throughout the day. Thank you for blessing us in so many ways, from purchasing gifts, spending time with the girls and giving of your time and talents. You are all such a large part of Agape and we are deeply grateful to and for you.

Inspired by Butterflies

What’s with all the Butterflies?

Agape House butterflies

Curious children playing in the summer sun often stop in their tracks to peek at a cocoon that houses a caterpillar transforming into something new. We stand in wonder of these tiny creatures that spin silky blankets around themselves, close out the world, and then emerge as something completely different from the bodies that went into hiding.

Too often, though, we see “cocoon behavior” that is not so filled with wonder. Parents struggling with alcohol addictions close their doors, hoping no one will see what’s happening within their hearts. Mothers in abusive relationships wall themselves off from concerned family and friends, afraid to leave what they think is the safety of what has become a cell. Children facing abuse and addiction and self-destructive behavior pull the blankets up over their eyes, frightened of a world beyond their familiar rooms. These are the everyday lives of so many who are trapped in a cocoon, afraid to come out of hiding.
