Wednesday September 24, 2008 Minnehaha United Methodist Church food shelf.
In some ways, MUMC is very different from what Methodist churches were when I was growing up. For example, in the 1950s, Protestant churches didn’t announce they welcomed Guacamole Lettuce Bacon Tomato members. (Back then, homosexuality was Scientifically Proven to be a mental disease. And that was the socially liberal position.)
I waited in the gym for my turn to pick up food. A couple of men were playing basketball while they waited.
My turn came. Among the breads available was olive bread, which brought back memories. I had first encountered it in London; I bought it thinking the olives were raisins….
I didn’t take that, but did take some loaves of designer bread. Concentrated on ones which I thought might make interesting French toast. (French name: pain perdu, which translates as lost bread. I once was lost, but now am toast….)
