Good morning readers! Today I am launching my first giving page for Special Touch REACH New England’s Annual Bowl-A-Thon.
Special Touch is a national ministry to the disabled. The work of Special Touch is to…
to ease and enrich the lives of people impacted by disability.
to provide faith-based support and response to needs that arise in the disability community.
By:Creating a safe, respectful environment for an individual’s potential and value
Relating through Servant hood
making faith Accessible
through Friendship without reciprocation
using Team based ministry
I have worked with Special Touch for three years as their New England Camp worship leader and last year as their New England Camp evangelist.
In addition I have been privileged to be a member of the core team that launched New England’s first Special Touch chapter, REACH New England .
REACH stands for Respecting Everyone’s Ability to Choose Hope!
Our bowl-a-thon is one of the ways that this vital ministry raises funds to operate.

Any of you who have been following me for any length of time know my alter ego is Pastor Wrinkles. Both of us (which is really just me) have been absent from WordPress for the better part of two weeks. It has been a busy and fruitful time of ministry. The first week I was busy writing sermons for the second week. Over the course of the last seven days I have preached eleven times and led one baptism service It has been an incredibly rewarding time. I marvel at what God is doing through one such as I.
It is a time of mighty harvest folks and I believe we are just at the beginning.
Here are some photos of the week that has just passed.

This week at Special Touch Disabilities Camp our theme us “Fearless.”
In the chapel services I am preaching I am speaking about 4 things we need to add to our lives in order to be fearless and 4 things we need to get rid of to be fearless.
We need to add.
We need to get rid of
4. Fear of change
Which of these do you think is the most important.
I am at the Northeast Regional Getaway for Special Touch. Keep us in prayer for mighty move of God.
This day marks the first of four seasonal concerts I am privileged to do this Christmas.
Today I am heading out to Special Touch REACH New England’s Christmas party. Our team is partnering with the Women’s Ministry from Bread of Life Church in Westminster MA to host a Christmas dinner for 50 disabled individuals!
