An alternative faith community has been gathering at my house on Monday nights for several months now. We eat soup and bread, which for us is symbolic of breaking bread, and we have conversation that deconstructs and reconstructs our ideas of God, church, and community.
A handful of the community have encouraged me to look into selling the soup we eat. So, earlier this month, I did!

I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God (Ephesians).

Recently, Raising A Village Foundation has secured a paid contract to do education programs in a local DC school. This is our first paid contract and something I have wanted for Raising A Village for a long time, especially when thinking about sustainable revenue streams. Now that we are about to start in two weeks, its time to put up or shut up. In other words, the time my team and I used over the last four months to prepare curriculum, systems, and plans now needs to be implemented. I am a bit nervous, hoping that all things will go as well as it can. So it begins... Let's see if this really works!
