>> Friday, January 13, 2012 – community, family, God talk: talking to kids about God, hunger, parenting, responsibility, serving
“I don't really feel like doing this," I whisper to my husband, Brad, as he pulls the mini-van into a parking space. The lot at the Center for People in Need is jammed with cars. The wind bites through our jackets as we scuttle toward the double doors of the warehouse.
Brad, our two boys and I have signed up to distribute food to the hundreds of people who will come through the line that night. But I don’t really want to be there. I’d rather be at home propped in front of HGTV with a glass of red wine and a box of Cheez-Its.
The only reason I’m about to volunteer a few hours of my time is that I feel obligated.
...will you join me over at the Lincoln Journal Star to read about my family's experience volunteering at a local food distribution center recently?
