Thank You Dinner

last night i attended a "thank you" dinner hosted by the Well Community. those who were invited had helped the church financially or through volunteer service. the dinner was more elegant than i could have imagined. i almost felt like i was at a wedding. it started with a dinner salad followed by the main course consisting of baked teriyaki chicken, green beans, steamed rice, and a roll. last but not least was a cherry cobbler for desert. it all was very good food and an all around great time. it was great hearing volunteers and community members speak on how the Well has impacted their life. my church as recently made a commitment to volunteer to serve the community a meal once a month. i have only been able to attend once to this point, but i must say that i had a great time and felt very rewarded emotionally and look forward to doing it again. here is a description of the Well Community from their website.

"the Well Community is a vibrant fellowship where men and women with mental illnesses and those who choose to share life with them connect and worship together. We connect and provide our Community Members with needed resources – material, emotional, spiritual – through weekly worship services and day-to-day counsel and friendship. In addition, we seek to inform, serve, and resource the greater Dallas faith-community, believing that every congregation in our city is affected by mental illness."
