Comfort Food

The Gathering continues sharing nourishment with others. Today, we provide lunch for Angelo State University students at United Campus Ministries. This Saturday, we serve the wider community through the Wesley Daily Bread Soup Kitchen. Last week, the Gathering provided food for Jason Grier's family and friends. Jason died too soon. He was too young.

While all forms of suffering cannot be eliminated, the Gathering does its best to alleviate hunger pangs. Breaking bread with others is sacred, holy. In that light, we serve.

Another Serving of Peace

The Gathering's newsletter describes today's meeting on peace:

Neil will lead our time of discussion, 5:30 pm, 618 Locust Street. The conversation will invite us to intellectually, spiritually, and experientially explore the driving and restraining forces for peace - both individually and communally.

We will join the efforts of the
11 Days of Global Peace observance as our offering will be designated for the Pennies for Peace campaign ( And we'll cool down from the hot topic by sharing our "potluck" of ice cream and ice cream condiments (cookies, cake, toppings, etc).

Bring a peaceful mouth with at least one sweet tooth!

Howard's Bell Ringers

The Gathering worshipped and broke bread under the mantle of peace on September 5. Extra peace energy came from our four bell ringers, seen smiling above. Who knew peace could be so fun?
