a Biblical thought...
Jesus replied, You are in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God. (Matthew 22:29)

a Book thought...
We surrender when we hand off every aspect of our lives - past, present, and future - to God and trust him completely with all of it. (p117)
a Dave thought...
Yesterday I was walking down Nelson Road Box Hill when I came across this small truck. The advertising caught my attention "Rescuing Food, Fighting Hunger" so last night I decided to explore FareShare some more...

FareShare, formerly known as One Umbrella, is an innovative, energetic organisation, rescuing food and fighting hunger.
Since 2001 we have given away healthy, nutritious meals to the hungry and the homeless in Victoria, using food donated by businesses. By ‘rescuing’ food, we mean that it would otherwise be wasted, ending up in landfill. And in saving food from landfill, we also do our bit for the planet by helping to cut methane pollution and reducing demand for new food products.

We are a small, not-for-profit community organisation operating on a very small budget, and with no operational funding from government. But through the tremendous passion and commitment of staff, volunteers and supporters, we continue to increase the amount of food we rescue and nutritious meals we prepare and give away to charities.
In May 2008 we moved into our wonderful new kitchen, the funds for which were kindly donated by extraordinarily generous supporters. Our gratitude to them knows no bounds. The new kitchen has increased our capacity substantially and we need more food, more volunteers and more funds because our goal is to give away one million meals a year.

Its always encouraging to come across another organisation who is helping the world become a better place.

Just a thought.
