On the Table, September 16-21

Bam…and just like that, it’s Fall. This is typically a time of adjustment for everyone as we get back into the routine that school schedules bring, and out of the chaos of summer vacation goodness. The coolness in the air has still somehow taken me by surprise; I am lamenting the thought of putting away my flip flops and skirts, and pulling out my warm clothes. What’s that we’re hearing about a long, crazy winter ahead???? Brrrrrr.

Last week, a bunch of us gathered to put together snack packs for the kids who attend the After School program that Cornerstones runs. There were lots of Common Table kids on hand to help organize and contribute to this All Ages service. Our little group was able to contribute 130 snack packs, AND tons of extras!

This Sunday, in our “regular” schedule structure, we would normally be meeting together for a time of sharing and organic worship (tell us about your week, bring something to share if you want); however, this week we will be meeting as a community to talk about our staff position and our present financial structure. We are hoping to conspire together about how best we can work together to continue to encourage one another toward a radical way of living and loving others, supporting the desire to bring redemption to our world (which sometimes looks like packing one Snack Pack at a time, side by side with a child). Child care will be provided (for kids 9 and under).

Come and conspire with us!
