"Feed My Sheep"

March was Minnesota Food Share Month - a month organized by the Greater Minneapolis Council of Churches.  It is an opportunity to be more than generous, as every pound of food we contribute and every dollar we offer is multiplied by the generous contributions of Minnesota corporations.

It is our chance to be part of a miracle, much like the 5 loaves and 2 fish that was multiplied to feed thousands!  It is a chance to "feed God's sheep."

Jesus says, "I was hungry and you fed me."  To which someone asked when had they ever seen him hungry?  He answered, "Whenever you feed the hungry, you are feeding me." 

Jesus is hungry in Minnesota today, tomorrow, and into the foreseeable future.  Please be as generous as you can be, so those in whom Jesus lives and those whom Jesus loves can have something to eat.

Miracles can happen.  A spirit of generosity can grow.  There is enough for all of us, if we have faith.

Minnesota Food Share month has come and gone - and our church donated 222 lbs of food!  Let's keep the generosity flowing - today, tomorrow, and always!

Most of this article was quoted from "A Note from Grant" in the March edition of "Faith Works," published by the St. Paul Area Council of Churches.
