Thanksgiving in Berlin

The ministerial group in Berlin is working together to deliver Thanksgiving meals to anyone who might need one.  I spent most of yesterday with Pastor Daryl McCready from SonRise and Pastor Gary Baer from Buckingham Presbyterian working to get everything together for the deliveries today.

At latest count, we have 107 families that we’re delivering the meals to today.  Each family is getting a box with a 10-12 pound turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, corn, green beans, rolls, cranberry sauce, stuffing, apple sauce, and brownie mix.  (I might be forgetting something, but I think that covers it.)  The churches in the Berlin area contributed about $1,300 to buy the turkey and rolls, and also collected most of the other stuff (we bought the rest with the money that was donated).

This afternoon and evening the meals are being delivered by volunteers from the churches.  It’s so cool to see churches working so closely together like this!  And it was very, very interesting hanging out with Daryl & Gary.  A very entertaining pair!
