Jesus said, "Who is greater, the one who is at the table or the one who serves? Is it not the one at the table? But I am among you as one who serves."
While many people talk about serving more times than not they are self-serving, not living up to our Christian call. This is why when people and places step up in mission and service I take time out to acknowledge them. Therefore today I would like to illustrate the servants hearts of A Just Harvest, they talk the talk and walk the walk.
The Community Kitchen A Just Harvest’s Community Kitchen began as a ministry of the Good News Community Church (United Church of Christ) in 1983. In the beginning, we served meals a few days per week. Today, with the help of more than 40 partnering organizations and nearly 10,000 volunteer hours, our Community Kitchen is the largest and only self-standing community soup kitchen in the Chicago metro area. We serve hot, nutritious meals 365 days per year to anyone in need. Last year, the Community Kitchen served more than 54,000 meals.
Family we should all take the call to service so seriously that we commit ourselves to helping persons going through the storms of life. For more information about these programs or opportunities go to: www.ajustharvest.org
