In about a week, July 14th-21st, Matt and I will be embarking on our journey to Oakland, California. We feel blessed to have the opportunity to study and learn from people who have such a deep heart for assisting others in walking through life in some difficult circumstances. We have watched from afar, and read about their mission at www.delanceystreetfoundation.org.
We have some ideas about how this could play out for Table Grace Ministries in the near to distant future and we are trusting that as we journey, learn and listen it will become clear how this may unfold in Omaha, Nebraska. We would ask for your prayers as we embark on this journey. I plan to keep you posted on our daily “learnings” while we are there, and how that may shape our future vision of Table Grace.
Matt mentioned about a week ago that we are nearing the date (November 2014) that marks four years since we began the journey that is now Table Grace Café. I recall that year vividly as he was possessed by the Holy Fire of the Holy Spirit, and nothing could stand in his way as he stepped daily in faith toward a community café where all would be welcome and all would experience the nourishing presence of spiritual and physical food.
The path may not yet be clear for the year and years to come, but recently I read “The path is made by walking”. So on we journey. Thank you for being along on this journey. Peace and Blessings to you this day.
