The Better Angels Invitation

Remember the Ice Bucket Challenge? Now the Better Angels Invitation allows you to support your very own Good Cause for the cost of a large pizza once a year. And you don’t have to dump anything on your head.

St. Paul’s letter to the Hebrews encourages us to treat strangers with kindness, since they might well be angels in disguise.
