At our Monday Night Community Suppers at West Chester Presbyterian Church, I have had the privilege of talking to so many of our guests and learning about their struggles and victories. Just like us, they are trying to make their way in this world and deal with the challenges life has thrown their way. There are many stories of pain, but also stories of faith and hope. One guest that comes to mind is a woman who was in an abusive home situation. She came to the dinners as an escape, but in talking to her we learned that with a little help she could relocate to a better place. First we stored some of her furniture so that she would have it when needed and then when the time was right we helped her move in with a relative and out of harm’s way. While this effort was not part of our plan for the dinners, I believe it was part of God’s plan. And frankly, that’s what it’s all about.
