Voice of the Day: Distributing Food

voice-mic

Via Sojourners:

Distributing food is a unique act of love because food is the basis for life. When the church can distribute food, it can allay one of people’s most primal fears — that of going hungry — as a way of helping people come to peace. When sources of food are close at hand, peace may be sustained.

—Pamela Couture, Vice President for Academic Affiars, Dean, and professor at Saint Paul School of Theology

I believe the food pantry is one of the most important ministries of our church.
