Why are we called Heartners?
previous Ladies Aid
meeting, it was decided that the new name for the ladies group would
be "Heartners". At that meeting, an excerpt entitled "Howdy,
Heartner" was read from the book "Squeeze the Moment" by Karen
O'Connor. Karen and a friend call themselves "heartners", which is
their code word for "partners of the heart". "Heartner" to them
means that "they will support one another at work, at home and in
the community with ongoing prayer, a listening ear, a heart of love,
advice when solicited and silence when it's not".
Heartners sweatshirts with the
Heartners logo and St. Matthew on them are available for purchase.
