Jessica Dunn Safonof
When it feels as though we’re living in a time of scarcity, how can we act from a place of generosity? We will hear the story “Stone Soup” and learn how a stranger taught an entire village the mighty power of sharing and giving. Generosity is one of the most important qualities we can possess and one that helps our communities function and grow. We will look at opportunities to notice grace and practice random acts of kindness and generosity in our everyday lives. And… we will make soup!
Attendees of this service are asked to bring a vegetarian soup ingredient – carrots, celery, potatoes, beans, rice, pasta, tomatoes, herbs, spices, etc. Ingredients can be fresh, frozen, or canned but they must be precut into bite sized pieces.
What happens when we all give just a little bit? Hopefully a delicious soup we can all eat together in fellowship!
