AFAC Bagging Team

Date: 
Contact Laura Jackson for October

Play a part by helping the Arlington Food Assistance Center feed some our less fortunate neighbors. We will be bagging food for distribution to AFAC clients; it could be a kind of produce, a dry good such as beans, rice or oatmeal, or assembling can bags for off site distribution. We work for about an hour. This is a good family activity, and earns service hours for high schoolers. Everyone is welcome. Please let John or Robin Overholt know if you can join us. Our email is overholj@yahoo.com. Location: 2708 S. Nelson Street, Arlington, VA 22206.

Everyone will have noticed by now a slow-down in the project. This is due to our main contractor, NKB, walking off the job on August 1 and informing us by letter that they could not complete the work.

On September 10 at 10:00 a.m., we will welcome guest preacher Rev. Sid Lovett for a service focused on peace and specifically the important work of the US Institute for Peace. Following worship, join together for a congregational lunch to catch up with the Rock Spring family after the summer.

The reality is that I too have

Authored your pain.

I laid a blank piece of paper down

When you needed me to respond.

I chose the shortcut.

I learned complicity,

Learned to move quietly in my privilege,

Learned to let the doors open for me

Before walked inside.

I inherited fear

And did not unlearn it.

In fight or flight, I flew.

I confess all this.

And I commit to hearing

The raw stories,

To letting your vulnerability

Chafe me.
