One Word from Roberta


Roberta is one of our Fresco hosts. On Monday mornings, she can be found in the sanctuary, talking with friends escaping the cold or telling guests about the significance of the Fresco. Here’s why Roberta chose “peace:”

“I keep coming here for the peace that I feel in the sanctuary and for the holy chaos. That’s what being in here with the fresco is like. Tourists sometimes look at it and ask where Jesus is. The first time I was asked the question it shocked me because it’s so clear to me! I just said, ‘Jesus is in every inch of it.”









During this season of giving the one word we keep coming back to is GRATITUDE. Gratitude for the many donors, supporters, companions and friends who make Haywood Street the wonderful community that it is. In that spirit, we asked folks around Haywood Street what ONE WORD they think of when they think of this community? Do you have a ONE WORD you’d like to share? If so, send us a note to
