True. :-) As special groups coordinator for our city's soup kitchen, I also was sent to the table of cooperative food ministries once a month to simply touch base with other coordintors and brainstorm for any better ways to serve or ways to expand. There were people there from all the churches in the city - Catholic, Orthodox, Protestant, Quaker, and also from the Temple. It's a different set-up now, but working together for a common good proved to us immediately and without strain that laboring for the common good can be blessed and become blessing, immediatley and without strain. We all, as people, are more alike than not, and we all know need, even if we don't all know actual hunger. Of course, we had an angel's help..the lady who had gotten the whole thing started had cooked and served with us only a few times before she succumbed to brain cancer, but it can be done even without the prayer of such a sterling soul. People are more beautiful than not, all. Surely that is also what Christ saw in every gathering of many interfaith thousands, or He couldn't have sent others to serve.
