Last year, I helped start an Anglican Church on the Southside of Richmond. The young priest is barely older than my son and at times refers to me a “dude.” That always makes me laugh.
Part of the plan to grow the new Parrish and build community was to gather people for food connected events. From the start, a serious cooker was part of the scheme.
Maybe this will turn out to be genius. Maybe it will be an expensive flop. I have no idea.
Regardless, I have to give this clergyman credit for thinking big.
And not thinking in typical church ways.
In a funny way there is a lesson even for non-church going lawyers. Err towards boldness.
Look beyond the usual lawyer ways.
For a number of reasons - geography being a big one - I didn’t join the new church much as I like the vicar.
On the other hand, with my love of barbecue, when I saw this Instagram post I was tempted to change.
