Comfort Socks (www.comfortsocksonline.org)is a 501(c)3 public charity that collects new socks from individuals, schools, companies, and apparel manufacturers. We then distribute the socks to homeless shelters, non-profit organizations who primarily serve the homeless, and to church and veteran homeless programs. Our mission is simple - Comfort- It just feels good to put on a new pair of socks, and we believe this warm and comfortable feeling can help to ease the pain of someone who feels lost or forgotten by this world. Comfort Socks stretches its service to homeless shelters coast to coast across America. We welcome volunteers and encourage sock drives and donations. Please keep us in your prayers and on your donation list -

The King and the Bride

Comfort Socks is always impressed when young people step forward to make a difference in the world. But last Saturday evening, at St. Peter the Fisherman church in Wilmington, NC, the performances of the King and the Bride far surpassed what we expected (sort of like our Lord's blessing to us - always better than we can imagine).

What has this show got to with Socks, you may ask? Well, Comfort Socks applauds these young men and women, who took so much of their time and themselves to share the story of Christ returning for His church set in contemporary time. We are proud to be in relationship with the youth of America in any positive of expression of God's goodness, kindness, and love.

The screenplay was written simply but powerfully. The story takes place in modern day America and starts with a young boy pretending to be sick so he didn't have to go to school. A concerned uncle learns while visiting with the boy, that he is confused as to the angry reaction of a school mate. The uncle proceeds to tell the story of Sams undying love for Lucy, an angry and bitter, feeling very abandoned and worthless young woman

The story reveals the truth of God's love for us, and His many attempts to show His love through His grace, understanding, and hopes in our lives.

I was so touched by the story, and thrilled to learn that the  music was original and written especially for the show by William, the young man who played Sam (one of the lead characters). The props and set was well thought out. All the actors did a unbelievable job, but the performances of William (Sam) and Casey (Lucy) really touched our hearts.

Would like to mention that we were invited to the performance by Deacon David Hueholt of St. Peter the Fisherman church, who receives socks from us to support their Early Bread Program. The Early Bread program gives socks on Sunday Mornings to the Wilmington, NC area homeless along with breakfast and encouragement. After the performance, we were excited to learn that William, who played Sam in the show, was David's son. William and Casey- Bravo for an excellent performance.

The consensus is that the Lord is not quite done with this great show - so we will watch expectantly for the next performance.
