Fullness from Emptiness: Feeding Millions from an Empty Bowl.
Barry Midgorden will talk about the Empty Bowls Project. From its humble beginnings almost 25 years ago, this project has focused on feeding people locally, while increasing the awareness of hunger and food insecurity globally. The empty bowl that inspired a world wide movement provides a metaphor for creating our own lives and a concrete vehicle to help others in our own community. From emptiness comes a form and function through which compassionate caring may feed and heal.
Sermon: Evelyn Whitmer & Barry Midgorden
