Phew!! I’ve just got back from inviting every person who lives in my street to join a Facebook site I have set up for the Road. The folks have also been asked if they are interested in helping host a street party on July 19th as part of The Big Lunch see http://www.thebiglunch.com/ .
It seems this is a great initiative for which Christians can help to take a lead role if we want to live out one of the core teachings of Jesus- loving our neighbours as ourselves. What better way to show this than be serving each other and getting road the table and sharing a large community meal. On July 19th let’s hope we see a mass exodus of the church leaving the building and serving up lunch in the street.
As one of my friends would say when saying grace; “Lord bless this bunch as they munch this lunch.”
