The church I belong to hosts a soup kitchen every Friday, from 11:00 to 12:00 or 12:30, however long it takes everyone to eat. The meals are free and everyone who comes in gets fed, no questions asked. Volunteering there is one of my favorite things. I get to hang out in the kitchen with people I really like, and serve people whom I also really like. I see God at work here every Friday-in the hands and hearts of those who cook, of those who serve, and in the faces of those who receive. Especially the kids.There is a unity of purpose there, a divine flow, a giving and receiving that flows both ways, as God intends. God is present here, maybe even smiling.
