Yes, Jubilee Furniture is OPEN today from 1 to 8 and tomorrow from 9 to 4! Lots of people are wonderin’!

The first time Good Friday rolled around and I was working at Jubilee Furniture, I assumed we’d be closed. Jubilee Furniture is a division of Outreach Community Ministries – a FAITH-based, social service agency. If you’re a person of faith, Good Friday is a biggie on the religious calendar. Loving, compassionate God – in essence – turned his back on his amazing, beloved son, Jesus – so Jesus could voluntarily, willingly, take on both my sins and the sins of the world and become a sacrifice in order to make a way for me (and you) to have a relationship with a perfect and holy God (that’s a long sentence and it doesn’t flow very well – but I can’t seem to think of a way to say it better without leaving out some key point). The paradoxical, amazing, beautiful part is the necessary separation of Father and Son ended three days later with Jesus’ rising from the dead and ascending into heaven. The heart-break of Good Friday (have always thought it should be called “Bad” Friday) followed quickly by the miraculous healing of Easter Sunday. Does not get any better and deserves a day off of work – amen?

Yet now – today – my fifth Good Friday of working at Jubilee Furniture I think I understand why we keep the store open: 1.) Jubilee Furniture is making money for Outreach – money desperately needed in order to allow Outreach to continue positively impacting lives in DuPage County; 2.) Jesus was forever working and healing on holy days and driving the religious leaders of his day batty. By following his example – I can count on it being a good thing; 3.) it allows me and the rest of the staff/volunteers at Jubilee Furniture an opportunity to interact with some of you who can’t make it out to the store on a normal Friday/Saturday due to your work schedule – and connecting with you is, honestly, one of our favorite things!

So, if you were to head out to Jubilee either today from 1 to 8 or tomorrow from 9 to 4 – what exactly might you find? Excellent question! Let’s take a look at some of the new-to-us stuff we received for donation this week!
