We are devastated by the events that took place in our community last night. In place of our regular Monday night service, we will be donating meals to those affected by the shooting. We will resume service Tuesday, June 14th, & will post our weekly menu & newsletter tomorrow evening. We love you, #Orlando. #orlandostrong #prayfororlando #thecitybeautiful (📷: @kerryhousley)
The only thing that can overcome darkness is light. Our hearts are heavy for our community & friends from this weekend's tragedies and mediating on love because that is the only way we are able to evolve. Grateful for all the LIGHT that has emerged in the face of tragedy while we mourn those who have been affected by cowards & fear.
we might be a little late, we did some last min alterations to the menu (still baller), and my eyes are swollen and red. I just need to be around a lot of love today. I need to be love. I need to hug everyone. Also, maybe cry on a shoulder or two. But you will be fed. And you will be hugged. And you will be loved. Come love me back.
Our hearts are with everyone today. Please consider donating blood if you can. Donation centers are asking for type O negative and O positive as well as plasma comers to come, and other donors to come through later in the week. If you donate, we've got a free cookie for you. (Making them right now) and we will give them away all week. Huge hugs to everyone.
