‘Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.’ Galatians 6:10
I recently came across a poster aimed at children, entitled ‘A Recipe for Friendship’. It caught my eye and I thought of the meals the Comfort Food ministry provides for members of the church family here at St Saviour’s.
A Recipe for Friendship
You will need:
- A pinch of happiness
- 1 handful of kindness
- 2 spoonfuls of gentleness
- 1 litre of sharing
- A teaspoonful of helpfulness
- 3 heaped tablespoons of laughter
- 50g of smiles
- A sprinkling of cheerfulness
- 100g of love
It made me smile, and I thought how many of the above ‘ingredients’ are included in the Comfort Food meals – it is my hope and prayer that they bring comfort, happiness, smiles, and helpfulness, and are made with love, cheerfulness and kindness. I have always said that Comfort Food is about so much more than the meals – and it is such a privilege to offer comfort, love and friendship to people by delivering a home-cooked meal. I wonder how many other practical tasks we can include these ‘ingredients’ in?
As always, I am so grateful to all who cook and deliver meals. I know that Comfort Food is just a small part of the church family naturally caring for one another, and that meals are being prepared and shared across the church every week.
Volunteers to go on the meals ministry rota are always welcome (too many cooks definitely don’t spoil the broth!). If you would like to find out more or get involved in this ministry, please speak to Lizzy.
