Digging a Hole with Our New Endeavor

Thought I’d post one of our weekly updates. It’s been a while, but we have a lot of new things going on.

First off, from my ‘Digging a Hole’ title, we’re building a community garden. There’s a lot of work to do, but we’re moving along nicely. In space behind the building where we meet there’s a grass lot that’s used for storage and parking. We got permission from the building’s owner to turn most of the grassy area into a community garden that we’re calling the Pilgrimage Promise Garden.

Here’s the lot…

Here’s our plan so far…

One of our folks is already planning to take the next Master Gardener course. You can find it HERE if you’d like to check out the course that’s offered by the Clemson University Agricultural Extension.

If you’d like to help out with our wish list of donations, here’s what we need:

  • 16 pcs treated 2x12x8′ lumber
  • 12 pcs treated 2x6x10′ lumber
  • 1 pcs treated 2x12x12′ lumber
  • 350 cu ft topsoil
  • 3 rolls of black landscaping fabric
  • 2 spade shovels
  • 2 hoes
  • 2 hard rakes
  • Wheel barrow

We’ve been meeting on Wednesday nights at our local Starbucks coffeehouse, but have kind of outgrown the location. So, this week we’re moving a block down and holding our study at the Denny’s. Still at 7pm. Come and join us and even have supper with us while you’re there. We’re still working our way through The Complete Idiot’s Guide to the Bible. Drop in and join us!

We played Stand Up by The Flobots last Sunday. It’s a good revolutionary type song, and there are a lot of rumors out there that most of the bandmembers are Christians. Here’s the LINK to the song.

We also played the farmer commercial that was shown during the Super Bowl. It’s an excellent commercial, my favorite of the entire Super Bowl. Here’s the LINK.

We’ll be starting a financial series this week that will incorporate many of Dave Ramsey’s teachings and a workbook called Four Week Financial Turnaround by Derek Olsen. I have the  workbooks already and they are $10 each if you’d like one or you can get a digital copy of it HERE if you want to go that route. Come join us for the financial series. I promise it’ll be fun!
