Blue Christmas

Thursday, Dec. 21  For those who are facing the holidays without a loved one, who are grieving, who don't feel joyful or festive and need a place where we can bring a little light and healing into the darkness.

The Stone Soup Pot

Your contribution to the meal, if you can: Either bring ingredients to the kitchen (or put in the plastic box at the back kitchen door) between 12-1 on Thursday, or bring ingredients at 5:45 that we can use for next time. We'll prepare a vegetarian soup, so bring boxes or cans of vegetable stock; onions, potatoes, carrots, other root vegetables, greens, farm stand produce, cans of beans, bags of lentils or beans; flour, yeast, oil, or bread mix; tea bags; condiments such as Indian or Asian sauces to spice to taste would be great too. We'll have at least one bread machine and a crock pot or pressure cooker.
