I have long prayed the Lord’s Prayer.
I have long uttered the words, “give us this day our daily bread”.
I have maybe never meant it as much as now.
I am learning to really, truly, deeply in my gut believe that God is going to provide enough.
My version of “enough” has maybe been skewed in the past. What I was really asking for was an over-abundance, or certainly more than was needed.
Money is scarce at PNC. On Monday I spent $72 at the grocery store. Honestly every time I go to use the debit card my stomach turns a little with the anticipation that there might not be enough. But there was, and we had a beautiful meal that was shared with more than 100 people.
I am not looking for a lot. I truly am looking for enough- enough to have this community continue into the future. Part of “enough” in this sense is finding a building to house our Monday Drop-In. I admittedly have been getting nervous as we near the end of our time at 201 Cowan Avenue. Well…drumroll, please…
We have a place! We are moving into a space at Bonar-Parkdale Presbyterian Church that is bright, fully accessible, bigger than what we’re leaving and only one block away. They have very warmly welcomed us and extended much grace in terms of rent. This indeed feels miraculous.
We have received our daily bread. And it is, in every sense of the word, enough.
