We enjoyed dinner together and then quickly cleaned off the tables and spread out the plastic tablecloths, jars of peanut butter and jelly, plastic knives and spoons and latex gloves.
It was amazing to me how much heat 16 bodies generated. The air conditioner was down on about 65 degrees and the rest of the house was cool but you could step through the door into the dining room and the heat went up about 10 degrees.
They quickly devised a plan - those on one end of the table removed the bread from the sacks and spread peanut butter on both pieces of bread (this is very important when a PB&J has to sit for a day or so - keeps the jelly from seeping through the bread) . . . then they passed the sandwiches to the jelly spreaders . . .then to the baggers and last but not least to Will. Will was in charge of counting and putting the sandwiches into the paper boxes.
There was lots of conversation about all sorts of topics. It was a great evening doing something for someone else!! I imagine the folks at Church of the reconciler really enjoyed our sandwiches.
