Default Thank you Brethren!


I think this exemplifies who and what the Brethren are.

I'd like to publicly thank the Brethren folks who contributed dishes to the meals that we prepared for the women from the Babylon Breast Cancer Coalition.

As a group, we prepared 10 large meals for women and their families who are struggling with cancer this year. I was lucky enough to help out with the delivery of two of the meals and the recipients were just bowled over. It was very gratifying to be able to help out just a bit for a day when everyone should be able to relax and have a meal w/ loved ones.

Some people made sweet potatoes, some made turkeys, some made creamed spinach and so on and so on. BTW, these weren't individual meals for the women, they were full family meals.

Tess, the president of the charity, picked up the meals and delivered most of them. She was clearly holding back tears.

This is most decidedly NOT an isolated story. This happens every month across the nation with Brethren in some capacity or another.

At it's heart, that's what the Brethren is to me. I don't know of another group of people that so regularly go out of their way to use their skills and resources to help others.

So, thanks to the Brethren that participated in cooking, thanks to the Brethren that helped deliver food and thanks to Brethren that do similar things throughout the year.
