I have mentioned before on this blog about living in a divine economy of abundance at the Church for All People. At times, it feels as if opportunity and resources just fall from the sky. Some days, the coming together of it all leaves me shaking my head and smiling.
Yesterday was one of those days.
We had our friends from Jerome UMC bring their weekly offering of pans of soup for Soup for the Soul. A gift of abundance in itself.
As soup was being set up, I harvested two large bowls of greens, lettuces, kale, and the strongest smelling basil I have ever smelled from our aeroponic garden tower that was given to us by Urban GEMS through the Ohio State Univesity. As people came in to the market, they smelled the harvest and took fresh food home.
And then, a woman came off the street named Amy. She asked if she could sing a song. Her voice filled the room with country and bluegrass songs. Her spirit soared as she talked about wanting to contribute something. Her gift brought down people from the offices and lifted up people from the community.
Just another day at the Church for All People, where God provides food, community, and music that lifts all of us.
