Lend a hand to feeding the men at the local homeless shelter?

Our local town has men’s shelter in the winter months. We are doing some fairly extensive volunteering there for over night shifts. If the shelter doesn’t have enough volunteers to cover the over nights they have to close, and it is the only option for folks in our area. As a rule, each day is split up into three volunteer needs, “Evening meal”, “Sign in”, and “Over night shelter staff”. We are looking some help to make Thursday, Friday, and Saturday of this week “Evening Meal”. We would love to be able to get pizzas, or chicken, or subs, or anything such as that for Thursday and Friday but need a hand pulling together the funds to make that happen! Please inbox if you would like to help in this matter or you can use the  

<–here. Also if you are willing to come down and spend an evening let me know  that would be amazing as well! (Need is through the end of March).  Shalom Shalom!

For 10 years we have had “three” basic rules for our community…

These rules have guarded from many ills, but we have learned that more is required. We have been much more guarded about whom we allow to dwell among us, but assuredly this is now the preamble to our three rules:

Here every man will treat every other man as a brother. Every man will be treated like a brother. Every woman will treat every other woman as a sister. Every woman will be treated like a sister.  All feelings, emotions, backgrounds, histories, experiences, opinions, educations, and view points are parts of the sum that make up the whole of a person, but ACTIONS (fruit) is what will be measured, and standard is set in Torah to determine which is good and what is undesirable.  To those who seek to be open, caring, and live righteous all burdens will be shared, all things held in common. Alas in today’s world that is a rare person that is willing to be held to the same standard they seek from others. Unfair/unbalanced measure will not be applied to favor those who wish to walk in wickedness, covetous, or other sin.

We must limit what we expect from others by their ability!

If we expect more of someone than they are capable of, that isn’t their shortcoming, it is ours for calling them to standard beyond their grasp. Regardless of what the pint wishes, it isn’t a quart…  Be encouraged and learn to grow, and be aware of what you expect from others… don’t look to quarts to be pints.  Shalom Shalom!

Would you like a short encouraging word once and awhile?

We all could use some positive encouragement from time to time, and a verse from The Holy Scripture can be right on time! Many of us have cell phones so we send out encouragements (once a week or so) to those who would like to have them! If you would like to be included follow this link https://www.remind.com/join/brethr  and just put in your name and cell number (or email if you prefer). Be encouraged and may The Father bless and guide us all! Shalom Shalom.

Do we, and when do we say a blessing with our meal? (What does Scripture say?)

bless_this_foodIn America (and most of the world) we are very accustomed to saying a blessing “over the food” or “blessing our food” before we eat. Where did this tradition come from and what does The Bible (Instructions) say about? Of course regardless of your understanding/insight there is no harm in praying before/during/and after…there is very few circumstances where “too much” prayer/blessings exist, but in regards to our “Instructions” given by The Father in His Word, see Deuteronomy 8:10 and measure your traditions against His Word.  “When thou hast eaten and art full, then thou shalt bless the Lord thy God for the good land which he hath given thee.  Shalom Shalom!bless_his_name
