Grace Abounds

By Mary Kay Totty The closest eatery to Dumbarton UMC was the Five Guys Burgers at the corner of Dumbarton and Wisconsin, a mere half block from the church. Five Guys was a favorite lunch spot for young adult Dumbartonians. Many a Sunday they wokuld wander over for a burger and soda. When the weather cooperated, they may bring their burgers back to the church steps for an impromptu picnic. I appreciate the hospitality these young adults extend to their pastor by always welcoming me to join them when my Sunday schedule permits.

The World Needs More Lace

laceBy Mary Kay Totty

Tatting.

I love to tat.

Tatting brings me joy and delight.

Tatting centers and grounds me.

And by tatting, I mean lace-making, not anything to do with tattoos.

Tatting is a form of lace-making using one basic double stitch to create patterns of rings and chain for edgings, doilies, jewelry. The world needs more lace.

The Year of Weddings

shoesBy the Rev. Mary Kay Totty

This has been a year of great weddings! I love these joyous occasions when friends and family gather from far and wide to celebrate the love and loyalty of two people. I have officiated or attended at least eight of these wonderful events this year. I want to share with you about four of these weddings.
