  • Grace Notes

    The week prior to Thanksgiving, my church participated in a week of hunger.

    The plan was to eat only beans, rice and tortillas for five days to experience what a huge percentage of people around the world eat all the time.

    Then we were to take the money we would've spent on food and donate it to help feed orphans in Haiti. In addition, after a shortened worship service, we would be dismissed early to go grocery shopping to buy food items to benefit local food pantries.
