GIVING

Sharing the Harvest

Every Sunday at our old, small-town church, a local farmer would back up his truck all the way to the sanctuary door, and lower the tailgate. The truck's bed overflowed with tomatoes & corn & cucumbers. He'd hand out plastic bags and tell us to dig in.

Giving is the best part of the growing season. We come close. We share rich foods, sweet flavors, and the gratitude of abundance. What table might you set this Lent?
