Creighton University Collaborative Ministry invited author Jane Knuth to talk about her book "Thrift Store Saints: Meeting Jesus 25 Cents at a Time". Her book and talk were full of stories about her experiences working at a Saint Vincent DePaul thrift store in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Jane was delightful and everybody really enjoyed her visit.
Pope Francis has declared a "Year of Mercy" beginning December 8. Amy Hoover, the director of the Creighton Retreat Center helped us reflect on mercy in the context of the beginning of Advent. Each of us can prepare for the Christmas season with this wonderful opportunity to reflect on the mercy of God for us all.
