We Have the Power to Impact Our Future

Stone Soup and the Power of We

Have you ever had stone soup? The recipe didn't first appear in cookbooks, but rather as an old folk story. The tale is told of two travelers walking through the countryside. Tired and tattered they came upon a village, knocked on the doors and asked if the residents had any food to spare. At each door they were told the same thing - "There is no food here." These two men, feeling sorry that the villagers had no food, announced that they would make a wonderful soup for everyone to eat. All they needed was a pot. Someone brought it. To it, they added a regular rock and poured in some water. "The soup would be so much better if it had a carrot." A child brought one. Then someone else a pepper. A potato from another. Herbs from yet another. Soon everyone gathered and brought something to  contribute to the pot. After a while they all enjoyed a nutritious meal together.

 

This is the Power of We.

 

Let's come together and create something wonderful.

Stone Soup is BOILING

In March, 2019, due to a confluence of unfortunate circumstances, we experienced a major crisis. Meeting our monthly financial obligations was not looking possible.

We called out, “Stone Soup!” And villagers responded from far and near, bringing their carrots, potatoes, peppers and beans. Filling the pot to almost full.

Experiencing this out-pouring of generosity was heart-warming and inspiring.

As you can see, however, it is not easy to keep the pot boiling.
