Jubilee Food Pantry 5-Year Anniversary Celebration!

“We can’t love God unless we love each other. And to love we must know each other. We know Him in the breaking of bread and we know each other in the breaking of bread. And we are not alone anymore.” ~ Dorothy Day

I shared the above quote from Dorothy Day a few weeks back at the JFP 5-Year anniversary celebration.  The truth of the importance of breaking bread together cannot be understated.  Jesus understood the importance when he broke bread with His disciples.  When we eat together, we are not along.  It was an absolute blessing to spend time celebrating with many folks who have participated in the JFP the past five years.  It was a time filled with joy.

Through a discernment process with others and a lot of discussion and prayer, Serenity and I have decided to reduce the number of times we will be opening up the pantry each month.  Starting in June, the JFP will be open every 1st and 3rd Tuesday each month.  This decision is centered much on the biblical concept of Sabbath.  Serenity and I, as well as our children, with the desire to continue pouring into others, need to be filled up ourselves.  Having the JFP open twice a month will allow us to continue to meet the needs of our community while also giving our family time to rest and refocus on the face of Jesus.  Please be in prayer with us as we transition into this new rhythm.  Here are some photos of our celebration:
