Whoever gives a cup of cold water

Whoever gives a cup of cold water

One of the things I love most about Community of Hope is the turned tables of who serves who. This non-tradtional ministry brings out non-traditional roles.Today, as more than 70 people gathered to worship, pray, sing, eat, and be, people took on unexpected jobs.

A homeless man served his friends enchiladas.

Teenagers sang as people gathered.

A 10 year old boy (my son Noah) handed out cups of cold water on a hot day.

Together, this unexpected group heard the promise of the Good Shepherd.

Together, people shared gifts of peace.

Together, people prayed for freedom from addiction.

Together, community happened.
