This post is a Little Free Pantry update. Yesterday the little free pantry received so much use that it was restocked four times. In an indication that it isn’t being misused, a different person came to collect items from the pantry each time. I’m sharing this to thank those of you who have contributed for your ministry and to encourage those of you who haven’t participated to do so. God made us to look out for one another, to care for one another, to serve one another. We are our siblings keepers.*
You can bring donations to the church office, drop them by the Divel’s house (the two story pink house on Cedar street across from the church—you can’t miss it) or simply keep them in the car and restock the little free pantry when you drive by. If you do the latter, please send me an email or text so we can keep track of how many times it is refilled.
*I know that in Genesis, Cain said, “I do not know; am I my brother’s keeper?” (NRSV) But Cain had just murdered his brother out of jealousy. Cain’s question is a cautionary tale, not an example to follow. The entire life of Jesus Christ affirms that we are indeed our siblings keepers.
