  • Saylor Strong: Family carries on toddler’s memory through butterfly carts for other grieving parents
    by Jessica Brodie on November 26, 2019 at 7:22 pm

    By Jessica Brodie. When Stephanie Robinson lost her young daughter, Saylor, this summer, she received an unexpected gift in the form of a “butterfly cart”—something she never could have imagined, but something that made her child’s passing a bit more bearable. Now, inspired both by a desire to help other grieving parents, and by a way to honor the beautiful impact of Saylor’s short life, the Robinson family has spent the last several months purchasing all the items needed to supply the pediatric intensive care unit at The Medical University of South Carolina Charleston with a butterfly cart of its own.

  • Holy City Mission: Charleston church uses space to host ministry teams, serve God in new way
    by Jessica Brodie on November 26, 2019 at 7:14 pm

    By Jessica Brodie. Using their building to host mission teams was not part of Aldersgate UMC, Charleston's, ministry plan. But God had other ideas. It all started a few years ago when the South Carolina Conference of the UMC needed a place for a disaster recovery volunteer to stay while he coordinated construction efforts in the area. Aldersgate UMC had the empty space, said pastor the Rev. Erik Grayson, so they offered it on a short-term basis. It was just supposed to be temporary. Now, the church has decided to fully embrace this new plan God has for them, launching what they have called Holy City Mission.
