Nurturing Our Bodies and Our Souls

Members of our Act II (55+) Ministry frequently break bread together. Whether it is in the form of Coffee and Conversation on the 4th Friday of the month, at our  First Friday Breakfast on the porch of Canopy Café, at the Third Thursday Dinner,  or at a special movie night with hot dog, ice cream and discussion following the movie.  We are nourishing our bodies but we are also nurturing our souls and fostering connections and community within our vibrant family.  Gathered around a table, we are all equals. Through the food on our plates, we share a common connection to the Earth and to each other. Breaking bread together breaks down barriers.  While we savor the company, we can forge an even deeper sense of community by collectively savoring the food we share.  Through conversations we getting to know one another better we are not only nurturing our bodies but nurture our souls through conversations and the friendships we make.

“Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.” – Acts 2:46-47
