Bread for the Journey teaser

Sorry there's been nothing posted here lately, but it's for good reason. For the last six months or so, we've been collectively working on a Jeff Street book of stories, poetry and essays. The book is in its final stages and will be sent off to be published soon.

The title is (barring in final changes...) Bread for the Journey: Stories and Whatnot from Jeff Street and the release date is slated for mid-July.

Look for more info about the book coming soon!

In the meantime, here is an excerpt from one of the essays, which is itself, an excerpt from one of Cindy's sermons...

Do you how sometimes in the spring and sometimes in the fall, there will be those days when everything is just so sharp, when the sky is as blue as blue can be and when you look at the trees you can see each little leaf, not just one big blob, but each little leaf, and the shadows, even the shadows are crisp and sharp and so well-delineated?

Well, that’s how it is around here a lot of the time. In the light of this community, we can often see things that clearly – like how very rich we are, not because of what we own, but because of one another, because of the grace and fidelity and abundance of second chances that we find in this place...

We are the light of the world, to these precious little ones, to one another, and to the principalities and powers of darkness. May we shine like crazy, and in our shining, may the world begin to see things clearly.
