Connecticut Baptist Homes (CBH) and Pierce Memorial Baptist Home (Pierce) are proud to announce that they will be sharing the Management Services of Patty Morse. During the search for a new Administrator to replace the retiring Len Goldberg, Pierce learned of Patty Morse who serves as President and Administrator at Connecticut Baptist Homes. As they learned more about the work that Patty does, they became more convinced that this would be the type of person that would help them move forward.
Exodus 35:20-29; 36:2-7
Generosity begins by remembering. And remembering in a certain kind of way. The ancient Israelites depended on, and made an art of, remembering. Throughout the psalms, there is a call to remembrance, to reflect on what God had done in the past—how God had delivered them out of slavery and protected their first-born children and how God split open the sea and swallowed up Pharaoh's army and how God had guided them through the wilderness and fed them on manna from heaven.
"They came, everyone whose heart was stirred, and everyone whose spirit was willing..." ~Exodus 35:21
