- Bringing Hunger to Church: One By One [ 6 comments]
- July 7, 2011
When I attended Sunday School a few weeks ago, I did not imagine that I would see the faces of hunger. I lived with it briefly as a child but did not conceive the thought that hunger would be in my daughter’s Sunday School class.

- Sowing Good Seeds in Cambridge, Maryland [ No comments]
- July 13, 2011
In church on Sunday, the gospel reading was the parable of the sower who scatters seed on the road, in rocky ground, among weeds, and in fertile ground. According to the story of the sower and the seed, the seed that falls on the fertile ground bears fruit due to deep roots, whereas the seed in the other places fails to prosper. For Christians it’s a message about openness to God’s grace, but I think it’s also a good metaphor for community development. I couldn’t help but think back on my visit last week to Waugh Chapel in Cambridge, MD, a church serving summer meals to nearly 60 kids this summer.
