Salisbury Cru = Plan A

We had a great time with Salisbury Cru this past weekend. Major highlights include sharing with them at Thursday large group, doing a quick MBTI and global culture workshop on Friday evening and serving at a local soup kitchen with them on Saturday morning.

Here's a quick list of what I learned or was reminded about again:
+ Salisbury Cru knows how to worship.
+ College students are far more well versed in community impact than we think sometimes. Every person that went to the soup kitchen with us on Saturday had done something like this before.
+ Community sometimes develops best when you and your friends serve someone besides yourselves.

I also learned that sometimes, Plan A actually works out. With no plan, we broke in to a church kitchen [literally] on Saturday morning and were immediately put to work. Not only that, JMoy got connected with Salisbury Urban Ministries, which serves around 600 families every month, within 10 minutes of the university. And I think D is right - JMoy might be anointed.

We had a great time as a family too, exploring Ocean City, Rehoboth Beach and all things beach - skeeball, funnel cakes and fresh squeezed lemonade.
