Don’t miss: Outreach from a bar stool | A lesson from a child | Coffee-shop church
What's cooking at a Boston-area soup kitchen? Tonight's special: respect. There's also rib-eye steak, salmon and homemade blueberry pie.
When our congregation served at a local food kitchen, Wanda, who was in her 80's always took the position of handing out the silverware. She had been through though times in her life, stories of being thrilled at receiving an orange for Christmas, and wanted to be able to hand the silverware to each person and look them in the eye and greet them with a smile and a blessing. Those putting food on the plate were reminded to say to themselves each time a spoonful of food hit the plate, The Body of Christ given for you. When you serve respect, not only the body, but the souls, yours and theirs, are nourished.
