Thanks to the incredible generosity of our community, we had ample donations and labor on Sunday, October 29th to serve a hearty dinner to around 100 diners at Loaves and Fishes. There wasn’t a crumb left over and we had the kitchen and dining room all cleaned up well before 7 PM.  Thanks to all who contributed, and to the setup and serve volunteers: Elizabeth Hornbeck, Robert & Abi MacGregor, Vera Reichlin, Michelle Golden, Dana & Bruce Weston, Avery Rayle & Greg, and Scott & Karin Bell.

As in previous years, CBS has adopted two families through the Voluntary Action Center’s holiday program: a mom with three kids and an elderly woman.
Click here for the SignUpGenius page that has all the details about the items on each family’s wish list and how you can help.
Drop off items at CBS in the box in the hallway of the sanctuary building the week of November 12. Everything will be picked up at noon on November 18. Or contact Michelle Golden at 314.603.3087 or michelle.golden@goldenperspective.com to arrange to drop off gifts at her home November 26-28. Also contact Michelle with questions.
Thank you so much for helping to make these families’ lives a little better!
Tikkun Olam Committee

The Tikkun Olam committee has organized a FaceBook fundraiser for Magen David Adom, Israel’s national emergency medical, disaster, ambulance, and blood bank service. 
Tikkun Olam will match the first 20 donations of $50 or more, and hope to donate the maximum, $1,000. To take part, click here  

The fundraiser runs through the end of November.

The Interfaith Garden, located south of the CBS parking lot, has been put to winter rest after another successful season. Nearly 2300 pounds of produce was donated to the Central Missouri Food Pantry in Columbia. CBS and the Newman Center, along with MU engineering students, helped make this a very productive year. 

Participants from CBS included Kayden Prinster, John & Deborah Zemke, Joe Strnad, Noah Heringman, Julie Deering, Brent Lowenberg and Laura Narrol. CBS religious school students spent a Sunday morning helping out.

The Garden always needs volunteers, regardless of experience. Stop by next spring, check out what we do, and help out a little to feed our community.

Burst the Silence is a musical fable about a father and son and a gift that gives voice to a haunted past. Robbie is a precocious kid growing up with his father, Konnie. A charismatic and irrepressible storyteller, Konnie is also shadowed by a memory that has remained hidden in the woods of his childhood: how he, as a young boy, survived the Holocaust. A turn in both their lives comes when Konnie gives seven-year-old Robbie a guitar, neither of them yet realizing that it will allow Robbie to tell the only story his father never could. Burst The Silence is an elegiac memoir about forgetting and remembering and being lost. And being found.
