Leaves of service

Iowa congregation honors volunteers

St. Stephen Lutheran Church, Urbandale, Iowa, celebrated its volunteers during worship by using a Revelation text: "And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations" (22:2).

St. Stephen's treeEach member at worship wrote on a "leaf" (fabric strip) one way in which they volunteered, served or gave their gifts to St. Stephen and, in turn, for the healing of the nations.
