Help Needed on the 2nd Sunday of Each Month
Roseville Lutheran has served a Loaves and Fishes meal at the Dorthy Day Center for many years. On the 2nd Monday of each month our volunteers prepare, cook, and serve brats and potatoes, veggies, fruit and homemade cookies. More than that, they are living out the RLC Vision, a community united by grace.
One of these servants recently reflected on his homeless neighbors saying:
“Their lives are in so many ways foreign to us: some carry their few possessions in backpacks and damaged duffle bags. The ‘hoarders’ use shopping carts. (I think of all the ‘stuff I have crammed into our garage and basement and realize my shopping carts would form an impossible-to-move caravan.) They shuffle from place to place seeking shelter while we, for the most part, are comfortably rooted in secure homes.”
Even with so many differences, he also writes about similarities saying: “Like we, they find meaning in friendships, share laughter, tears, stories, and fragile hopes with others.”
The Dorothy Day Center has opened a new building downtown St. Paul, with this new facility will come more guests for each evening meal. The Roseville Lutheran team will continue to serve on the second Monday of the month, but they need more servants. Will you join us? You can sign up for 2 shifts each month, you can serve from 2:30 until 4 pm or from 4 until 5:30 pm. The first shift will prepare and cook the meal, the second shift will serve and clean up. Sign up one time, or sign up for a monthly commitment. Come and use your time to love and serve your neighbors in need.
