The Blessing of Meals

It is a blessing to have a meal prepared and served to you by someone that you do not know.

In preparation for each of the funeral service of my step-grandmother, Alice Conard, and my grandmother, Nora Fieser, our family shared in a meal prepared by the members of First United Methodist Church in Great Bend and Plains United Methodist Church, respectively.

At a time of grief, good home cooked food was truly comforting and I felt that it was one of the more tangible signs of care that I received.

Thank God for good cooks and caring souls willing to share the blessing of meals.
