Sunday Sermon: The Abundant Community

…open the door, go out and have conversations.

Recently I was having a conversation with a pastor from a local church,
talking about our annual fundraiser for our community park. He had asked if
there was anything he could do to help. I had been wanting to expand our
festival to three days, but we did not have enough volunteers.  The pastor
said, would 70 volunteers help…

What started as a simple conversation over a cup of coffee has turned into a
three day community gathering. The church will hold their Sunday morning
worship service in the park followed by a family picnic and ice cream
social, free and open to all.
