We want to help you save the stained glass window. My new bride, Marti, and I portray President and Mrs. Abraham Lincoln.
With Manchester, Robert Lincoln's summer home not that far away, perhaps we could draw a lot of folks to come see our motivational, inspirational and historical show to raise some well-needed funds.
If you don't already have another ABE helping we would love to come help with some shows to do some fund raising to help with the church, shelter and saving the ABE for an ABE as I have said for 35 years.
I know how much that window means to the church and I would hate to see it gone bye-bye. We have some in my church where I am in the choir that aren't nearly as pretty as yours.
Perhaps with the TV piece on ABC tonight you will get enough donations you won't lose it but let us know if we can help. May GOD continue to bless you and the wonderful work you are doing there.

I second that. The address is listed above. I'm not rich, but, a little can go a long way to keep the window where it belongs. I am not religous, that said dosen't mean I don't care. We have to care. 35 years ago I ran away from home and ended up in the area ( Bennington, to North Adams) I liked the history in the area. what a shame that the church loses that beautiful window. If everybody gives just $5.00. I'm sure that window won't be going anywhere!

I think the free meal program is too large of a burdon for one church.
My church, Immanuel Lutheran Church in Watertown Wis. has also had huge financial problems these past years. We also have a large church building and very expensive heating bills. Our church houses the local food pantry, and also serves our community's Bread and Roses meal to ~120 people/week. One thing we do that is different is that our free meal is a community/regional effort. Local churches (all denominations) and service groups all participate. Each group is assigned weeks to help. They provide the desserts, set the tables, assist to make the meal, serve and clean up. All of these groups hold fundraisers for monies, coolers, freezers and our brand new institutional size stove.
Perhaps the community needs to work together to save this much needed program. Feel free to contact our church for more advice if desired.

I just want to let you know that we do not have much money either but we are donating online and hope others do same. The situation you are dealing with should not mean you have to sell your stained glass window to provide such services as you are doing.
It is shameful that this is happening in the United States or anywhere in the world.
Many people in the United States have been given bonuses that could operate many churches such as yours for years. SHAMEFUL!
We are going to try and get other attention for your church and others.Merry Christmas from my Acworth, Georgia family

I am definitely making a donation. This is a worthy cause if ever there was one. I agree with the previous comment about the many business giving bonuses that could go a long way to help the church and the homeless in communities all across the country. Nevetheless, I think that individuals who care, will do more than those greedy **!xz*. Don't wait around for them to pitch in. A few bucks from everyone who saw the broadcast would add up to who knows how much? Christmas is all about miracles.
