City Church of New Orleans Making Holidays Brighter Through Ongoing Charity Work

NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA, UNITED STATES, November 23, 2020 / — City Church of New Orleans has a history of helping those in need in the community throughout the year and plans to continue its efforts heading into this Christmas season and beyond.

Last year its iCare Ministry teamed up with New Orleans Saints All-Pro, Cam Jordan, to give away 300 turkeys to ensure families had a healthy feast to liven up the occasion, continuing the church's tradition of giving away turkeys dating back to 2014.

While the church also introduced events around Easter in the past few years such as a fun Helicopter Easter Egg Drop, its iCare Ministry ensured people had healthy meals to enjoy during this time of year while facing unprecedented challenges. More specifically, on April 2, it handed out 5,000 meals, followed by 400 more including an Easter basket giveaway on April 11. This determined effort was followed by an even greater giveaway of 6,000 meals on April 16.

City Church of New Orleans continued by providing a generous 6,000 meals on May 1 and then the same number again on May 15. The meal giveaways were done in partnership with City Councilwoman, Honorable Cyndi Nguyen. As part of these recent meal giveaways, the church took special precautions to follow social distancing protocols in place to protect both the recipients and volunteers that made the outreach possible.

The church also teamed up with Catholic Charities to provide 200 boxes of commodities to elderly residents of District E and allowed others to pick up on the behalf of these seniors to make it more convenient for them.

City Church of New Orleans plans to continue its efforts this Christmas while also spreading cheer. With this in mind, it will focus on meeting needs within its local congregation by providing meals along with gift cards in the spirit of giving.

Bacco Farms, other cannabis businesses support Flint's needy with huge turkey donation

100 turkeys donated by Bacco Farms, Six Labs and T Rex Cultivation go to Greater Holy Temple Church for distribution to Flint area needy families

I would like to have our community know that the cannabis industry is also made of people who care about their fellow man, just like any other business people.”

— Regina Momgaudas, Bacco Farms

FLINT, MICHIGAN, UNITED STATES, November 23, 2020 / — One hundred families will have a happier Thanksgiving this year due to a donation of cooking turkeys from cannabis industry companies in the Flint area.

The donation was spearheaded by Bacco Farms, a provisioning center and licensed cannabis retailer on Dort Highway in Flint. Owner Regina Momgaudas said, "I would like to have our community know that the cannabis industry is also made of people who care about their fellow man, just like any other business people. With the current epidemic, which has caused so many people to lose their jobs, I decided to help at least a 100 people by donating 100 turkeys to my community of Flint."

Two of Bacco Farms' suppliers donated toward the food gift for the needy: T Rex Cultivation and Six Labs. The turkeys were donated to the Food Bank via Greater Holy Temple Church and will be distributed to those on their food bank list.

Bacco Farms recently announced the medical marijuana provisioning center has opened for adult use cannabis sales as a licensed cannabis retailer. The mother-daughter owned business was founded in the beginning of July in 2019 by women who know and understand the power of cannabis. Regina and daughter Phoebe are dedicated to eliminating the negative stigma surrounding cannabis users, cannabis businesses and the plant's medicinal properties.

Special thanks goes out to Mr. Carter from the Kroger on Richfield Road, who helped get the 10- to 14-lb Butterball turkeys ordered in time for the Thanksgiving holiday. "Thank god Mr. Carter believed in my cause," said Momgaudas. "He did not care that it was the cannabis industry, he only cared that we had a good cause."

Bacco Farms is located at 6200 North Dort Highway in Flint near Pierson Road.

T Rex Cultivations can be reached through Brent Cook at or 616-307-7467

The Legend of Vasilopita and the Lucky Gold Coin

The Golden Saint Basil Vasilopita Coin

The Golden St. Basil Vasilopita Coin

What is a Vasilopita and why is it unique? The answer lies in the direct translation from the Greek, meaning “Basil’s Bread” but with a very interesting twist.

Finding the Gold Coin in your piece of the cake is a lasting life-long Family memory, not only for the Greeks, but for all that practicing gratitude, connecting Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year”

— Elias Papadeas

DAYTONA BEACH, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, November 21, 2020 / — The Vasilopita is usually celebrated on New Year’s Eve, but in many counties, it takes place on Christmas, and the end result is a beautiful family tradition, the Vasilopita it is actually a very flavorful cake rather than just a bread, it has a very interesting legacy, in that a lucky coin is baked right into it, and everyone knows this, anxiously waiting for that moment of who will find the coin in their piece, known to promise good fortune for the rest of the year.

This year, the traditional “Cutting of the Vasilopita” will be as unusual as the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, where normally, family and friends get together to celebrate their gratitude. In the age of Covid-19 and social distancing, many are understandably afraid, cautious, and bewildered. But one must think back into the history that has endured the survival of this 1,600-year tradition, where people still celebrated despite famine, disease, conflicts, and other difficult struggles, mainly because the human spirit is thankfully strong and unyielding.

One would think it would be the younger set that would be filled with eagerness, but it is a recognized fact that everyone around the table, regardless of age, shares the same heightened level of anticipation.

According to legend, in the ancient city of Caesarea in 300ad, lived a bishop named Basil, who later became a saint. When his city was under siege by a ruthless tyrant, Basil asked the people to help pay a ransom in order to save their city. The tyrant, humiliated by the total solidarity of the city’s townspeople, finally reversed his position without taking the ransom.

Saint Basil was now faced with the responsibility of how to return the valuables to the people. Facing a conclusion that was seemingly impossible for anyone to know what belonged to whom, he tasked the village bakers to make loaves of bread in which were placed their valuables, but the underlying miracle was that everyone received exactly what they had donated.

The Vasilopita tradition, which continues to this day, is celebrated by Eastern Orthodox people around the world, in the United States, Greece, Eastern Europe, Albania, Bosnia, Bulgaria, Croatia, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Romania, Serbia, and Slovenia, where the family cuts the Vasilopita at midnight on the New Year’s Eve to bless their house and to bring good luck.

The ritual begins with the head of the household, who cuts the Vasilopita, by first making the sign of cross with a knife and then by cutting a piece for the Lord and the Deity, commencing down from their to the eldest to the youngest, and the one who finds the coin inside their piece of cake is considered lucky for the rest of the year.

The Golden Saint Basil Vasilopita coin was designed and minted by Father George L. Papadeas, the first American-Born Greek Orthodox priest in America, for the express purpose of continuing this important tradition for the formative years of youth whom will carry it onto their future families.

Patmos Press is headquartered in Central Florida serving the Eastern Orthodox Community since 1963 exclusively online across the United States and the rest of the world.

How to remain cheerful despite pandemic restrictions? Three Scientologists share the secret with visitors to the Scientology website. It’s the joy of creating.

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, November 20, 2020 / — In Johannesburg, South Africa, turning unfinished ceramics into unique works of art while at home is what puts a smile on Gaye’s face. She creates colorful creatures in a traditional African style.

In Kaohsiung, Taiwan, graphic artist Yen-Hua lets the camera roll while he materializes a giant panda for all to see. Pen and ink is the medium he uses to brighten his mood.

Phoenix, a young singer-songwriter in Los Angeles, California, derives pleasure from her a capella musical creations.

Their videos are available at Scientology/Daily Connect on the Scientology website.

All three are applying “The Joy of Creating” by Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard:

“Force yourself to smile and you’ll soon stop frowning.
Force yourself to laugh and you’ll soon find something to laugh about.
Wax enthusiastic and you’ll very soon feel so.
A being causes his own feelings.
The greatest joy there is in life is creating.
Splurge on it!”

Scientology/Daily Connect was created as part of a program to ensure everyone makes it through the pandemic safe and well. As soon as the pandemic began, the most effective measures were researched for ensuring the safety of Scientology staff and parishioners, and these were implemented internationally as protocols under the direction of Scientology ecclesiastical leader Mr. David Miscavige.

To make this prevention information broadly available, the Church of Scientology created more than a dozen videos and three educational booklets: How to Keep Yourself & Others Well, How to Protect Yourself & Others with a Mask & Gloves and How to Prevent the Spread of Illness with Isolation. These are all available in 21 languages on the How to Stay Well Prevention Resource Center on the Scientology website.

Since May, Scientologists have distributed 5 million copies of these educational booklets in communities around Scientology Churches and Missions across the globe.

Judge Pens Memoir Celebrating Powerful Legacy of “Twins for Justice” Who Helped Transform Lives of Drug Addicts, Others

“Your Honor, Your Honor” by Judge J. Leonia Lloyd’s Poignant Account of Her Twin Sister’s Sudden, Shocking Death and How Faith Healed Her Grief

“I wrote this book especially for people, from all walks of life, to believe in themselves and their dreams, and to understand that education and a strong work ethic are the formula for success.” ”

— Judge Leonia Lloyd

DETROIT, MICHIGAN, USA , November 20, 2020 / — A powerful new memoir by Judge Leonia J. Lloyd showcases the unique and inspiring story of beautiful, brilliant twins who ascended to one of America’s biggest courts and helped transform thousands of lives as “Twins for Justice.”

Your Honor, Your Honor: A Journey Through Grief and Restorative Justice exalts the power of family values, achieving against the odds, triumphing over racism and sexism, and pioneering a career path to a pinnacle of high-profile achievement that helped society’s most vulnerable people triumph over addiction, prostitution, and the deadly perils of crime and street life.

The book is available on amazon in hardcover, paperback and ebook formats.

“I wrote this book especially for people, from all walks of life, to believe in themselves and their dreams, and to understand that education and a strong work ethic are the formula for success,” says Judge Lloyd, a popular commencement speaker. “I also want to show my life as an example that when life delivers tragedies, and you think you can’t go on, you can rely on faith and loving people to heal, recover, and continue making a positive contribution to the world.”

Judge Lloyd did that in 2001 after the sudden death of her sister, Judge Leona L. Lloyd. She performed CPR on her twin, who died instantly of cardiac arrest.
In the midst of her paralyzing grief, many people—and the power of faith—helped Judge Lloyd, and she ultimately returned to Detroit’s 36th District Court. There she continued the legacy that she and her sister started, by joining the Drug Treatment Court, which aimed to help people escape a vicious cycle of addiction and crime.

Judge Lloyd also implemented Project Fresh Start to help people who practiced the act of prostitution recover from addiction and enjoy healthy, productive lives. Thousands of people have graduated from these “restorative justice” programs to create stable, happier lifestyles.
In the book, Judge Lloyd composed her unique life story in chapters, in which many subtitles were named after Motown Music songs.

The memoir begins with the surprise moment of their birth when two baby girls were born, even though the doctor had detected only one heartbeat during Mattie N. Lloyd’s pregnancy. At the time, in 1949, when segregation was legal and blatant racism blocked opportunities for Black girls, Leonia and her sister Leona applied their parents’ strong family values to excel in education. A short stint as models did not stop their plans to graduate from Wayne State University, then become teachers at nationally-renowned Cass Technical High School and Redford High School. They attended law school, then opened the Lloyd and Lloyd law firm, which they ran for ten years. Then Leonia went on to run a successful judicial Campaign, under the banner, “Twins for Justice.”

Two years later Leona ran her successful judicial campaign under the same banner but with a twist, “Twins for Justice … send the other one to the bench,” they became America’s first identical-twin district court judges to sit on the same bench at the same time.

In the book, Judge Lloyd, who is now retired, shares stories about:
● The mental illness that her mother—Registered Nurse Mattie N. Lloyd—suffered after a brain hemorrhage.
● The commitment that her father—auto body mechanic Leon T. Lloyd Jr.—demonstrated by keeping the family together to raise two successful daughters despite racism, his wife’s multiple personalities and breakdowns, and later, his struggles with alcoholism.
● Situations that showcase her parents’ words of wisdom and actions that taught the girls discipline, perseverance, and determination to triumph over challenges.
● Racial unrest, the 1967 Detroit insurrection, and how wearing an afro drew disapproval from her boss and colleagues at a job during college.
● Examples of people whose lives were transformed by Drug Treatment Court and Project Fresh Start, for persons who practiced the act of prostitution.
● How she led the creation and implementation of Michigan’s second Veteran’s Treatment Court.
● Examples that illustrated how the powerful bond between the twin sisters could not be broken by death.
● A powerful testament to the power of faith that provided the people, synchronicities, and strength to heal from paralyzing grief and carry on the spirit of her sister by making a positive impact on thousands of people during her tenure on the bench.

Your Honor, Your Honor makes a perfect holiday gift, as it delivers an entertaining, inspiring read that sparkles with wisdom and lessons about how to create a successful life, even when tragedies and challenges make that seem impossible. Judge Lloyd shows that with faith, anything is possible.

Judge Lloyd is available for media interviews, speaking engagements, and book signings. For more information, please contact Pam Perry at 248-690-6810 and For more information on Judge Leonia Lloyd, visit

Let Her Out presents a blend of life story meeting life coaching. Inspired by the diaries Natalie kept as a girl, as well as her own personal path to reinvention, Let Her Out presents over 100 coaching questions to help anyone reconnect with who they were meant to be.

“Uncovering my diaries and essays felt like winning the lottery because they are informing my work in ways I couldn’t anticipate,” says Natalie. “Reading the words from my younger self reminded me that I have always been who I was meant to be. You have always been who you were meant to be, too.”

Natalie’s career has taken her from Silicon Valley to the Fortune 100 and into entrepreneurship, but being raised in Republic, OH (population 600) is where she learned her greatest leadership lessons. Natalie uses these lessons learned from small-town living to help leaders and organizations create big success in the world.

In addition to being a 10-year 4-H member and repeat State Fair champion in public speaking, Natalie is a two-time graduate of The Ohio State University and Professional Coach accredited through the International Coach Federation. She has 20+ years of experience coaching, developing leaders, and strengthening teams in the non-profit, higher education, and corporate sectors. She works with both 1:1 and small group coaching clients to help them be more connected – to themselves, their work, families, and communities. She is a frequent speaker at leadership, university, and corporate events.

Natalie resides in Dublin, Ohio with her husband, Rob, and two young daughters. When she is not writing, speaking, or coaching, she enjoys mentoring students, training for endurance athletic events, and improving her golf game.
