What started as a question posed on Facebook amongst a few friends has transformed into a movement that no one expected. God has carried it far beyond the dreams or visions of anyone who was at that first fateful BBQ at Woodward & Willis. There are now community meals shared regularly in 4 locations across southeast Michigan.
What began with a handful of friends and acquaintances having just read a book is now a moving, breathing and growing collaborative effort of churches, ministries, community groups and individuals helping to fill our region with the hope and love of Christ. People from across city and suburbs alike are joining together in community… to the tune of 1000 people a month. That is far beyond what any one or even a few of us could do. That is only possible because all of us have worked together to do and share as God has called us to. If we all do what we can do, there is no end to what God can do through us.
In the scheme of things, 4 years is less of an accomplishment and more of a beginning point. Thank you to everyone who made this beginning point possible. It’s been an amazing ride so far… I can’t wait to see what God has in store for the next 4 years!
Grace and peace.
