“I didn’t think that such a thing was possible, that there would be people that don’t even know us, yet would help us.”
Blooming Glen Mennonite Church
On June 13, twenty-one of us from Blooming Glen traveled to Oxford Circle (Philadelphia, PA) Mennonite Church. We spent hours listening, learning, and eating a delicious Colombian meal together. We engaged in intentional conversation to build understanding and gain a new perspective on the difficult topic of racism.
In the fall of 2020, MennoMedia released the latest Mennonite hymnal, Voices Together, commissioned by Mennonite Church USA and Mennonite Church Canada.
Wishing to be seen, listened to, and examined with care was important for recipients as well as the caregiver during these “holy moments.” As a retired physician, I witnessed the image of God in many unfamiliar faces.
Blooming Glen wants to be a Christ-like presence and blessing in our community.
Every time SWAP and the community members share meals and stories, they touch each others’ lives.
