.Community Dinner goes outside.

Thursday nights we take turns cooking
and get to eat and connect.
The rule is "no guilt no stress".
If it's breakfast for dinner, then it's breakfast for dinner.
If it's quick bc we all have a paper the next day,
then it's quick.
If we're running late, then we're late (I love that rule).

But sharing a meal and making sure we stop
to be together and enjoy each other
has become an anchor in my week...
and one of my favorite ones.

I love my friends,
I love where we live,
and I love enjoying slow simple joys like:
easy food, happy babies, pretty trees, time together.




(Fun to see how this friendship has grown in eight months.)

Human Needs Global Resources Covenant, 2009

As fellow travelers on this journey, we commit to this covenant before God. Lord, in Your mercy, hear these our prayers:

When confronted with scarcity, need, and inadequacy, may we be nourished by the Bread of Life and the Cup of Salvation. Abundance overflows from Your table, sustaining all who come in faith. Father, help us.

When monotony blurs our vision and dulls our senses, may we encounter others as Christ did, through intentional presence in daily life, submitting as clay to be formed into vessels filled with the Spirit. Christ, guide us.

When wounded by the fractured condition of Your people, may we be united by Your Lordship in faith, hope, and love; seeing, as through the facets of a diamond, the beautiful spectrum of Your light reflected onto Your holy Church joined in praise. Spirit, empower us.

When all Creation groans, afflicted by injustice and driven to despair, may the promise of redemption root us in the hope of Your Kingdom: "Behold, I am making all things new!"

Holy Trinity, send us now into the world in peace, and grant us strength and courage to love and serve You with gladness and singleness of heart.
