Red Sweater Club

Today at church a new group was present – the Red Sweater Club. Itís not an organized club by any means, but there must be some sort of subliminal organization to it, because as I looked around to my part of the sanctuary (I can see less than half the folks in attendance), I counted over thirty people wearing Red Sweaters or Sweatshirts or Shirts or Scarves . . . or all of the above.

One of those folks, looking absolutely glowing in her crimson garment, was my friend Marta who spoke about our theme for this week of Advent: peace. Marta is one of the most eloquent, well-spoken, truly beautiful people I know. She jokes that sheís the least-qualified person to speak on the subject of peace, but let me tell ya: it just oozes out of her pores, even if she believes sheís flustered.

Hereís what she had to say. Thanks for sharing, Red Sweater Friend.

**Edit**

I’m not the only one who noticed the beauty of Marta’s words . . . and the thematic attire of the day.
