A Message from
Rev. Beth Marshall
The story of Stone Soup has always been a favorite of mine for talking about generosity in anxious times.
You probably know the general outline. A pair of travelers come into a small village, hoping to find a place to sleep and a hot meal.
The people at each cottage turn them away, telling them they have nothing to share – no place for them to sleep, not even a crust of bread to fill their bellies. However, the travelers had a magic stone, with which they offered to make Stone Soup.
In no time at all, the villagers all came forward with something to add to the soup – a carrot, a turnip, a bit of protein, a handful of rice. It was their small, collective efforts, their bits of nothing that added up to enough to feed the village.
We adults learned patterns of generosity as children. We can learn stronger patterns as adults, because even when faced with apparent scarcity, most of us can find something to share. In the month often defined by abundance and generosity, may we be willing to expand how we understand being generous. We might just all benefit.
See you in church,

We still could use a few more books to round out our donation including westerns, mysteries and adventures, GED test preps, yoga and exercise and history. All books must be paperback and may not include content of a strong sexual nature.
