The Pastor's Post
I remember an episode of the TV classic, “Beverly Hillbillies,” where Granny claimed to have the cure for the common cold – it was her secret recipe chicken soup. She declared, “If you have a cold, eat some of my chicken soup and in ten days the cold will be gone!”
While we know that chicken soup doesn’t cure the common cold, if you are like me, it sure tastes good when we have a cold; and other times, too.
I mention this because as I write this letter, we are in the midst of a soup drive at United Church. This year we are joining with a national campaign called “Souper Bowl of Caring.” The goal of that campaign is for organizations, clubs, groups, and churches all across the United States to make an effort in the days leading up to the NFL’s Super Bowl (which is Sunday February 7 this year) to collect soup. Then, the soup collected will be shared with those in need in each respective community. The soup we raise will be shared with Valley View Food Bank. Our goal is 2000 cans of soup. We are well on our way. No matter how much we raise, every can makes a difference in the life of another person.
And if you don’t happen to see this letter before the completion of the campaign, it’s OK. Buy a few extra cans of soup anytime of the year and bring them to the church so they can be shared with Valley View. Soup is a good donation. It is economical and it is non-perishable. Plus, as the choir has reminded us, it is “Mmmm Mmmm Good!”
Granny might disagree, but it doesn’t have to be chicken noodle; any soup will do. So, the next time you are in the store, grab a few extra cans of soup - it might not cure the common cold but it will be good for the soul.
Thanks for all the ways you care,
