Pick up your Honor Cards that night!
Proceeds from the sale of Exodus Homes' William Mangum Honor Cards is a VERY important source of funding for our program. As you plan for the holidays, please consider giving Exodus Homes Honor Cards as a small gift that makes a BIG difference! Each Honor Card is $5.00, and 100% of the proceeds go to Exodus Homes.
We are a society that measures and compares ourselves against one another. There is a tendency to feel better about ourselves when our particular situation isn’t as dire as someone else’s. “Thank God that’s not me!” is a regretful statement many of us have uttered under our breath as we look upon the plight of others suffering a hardship. So often, we set ourselves apart from those suffering without realizing that in a second we could be in their shoes.
Sometimes, the unexpected upsets our routine, and we are knocked off-balance. Perhaps it’s bad news about our job being eliminated, or disturbing test results from our doctor. It may even be an attack from our spiritual enemy. In each case, our emotional equilibrium is hammered, and we feel as if we can’t stand. Those moments should cause us to turn to God. When we feel we are losing our balance, He can help. When life knocks us off our feet, we don’t have to be frustrated. With God’s strength lifting us up, we can still stand strong. So often that hand up comes through the efforts of volunteers at churches, shelters, and other outreach agencies.
God works through his faithful servants at Exodus Homes to be the hands of Christ to homeless recovering people returning to the community from treatment centers and prison.
The 2013 Honor Card is titled "Fall Into Him" because we can do that anytime we need God's steady hand.
Please join us for a very special dinner with artist William Mangum
as we kick off the 2013 Honor Card season. At the end of the season we will be recognizing the top sellers in the church, business, and individual categories.
