Another Great Night at The Inspiration Cafe!

Hi, Everyone- A big THANK YOU for cooking and serving an awesome dinner on Saturday at the Inspiration Cafe. Everyone seemed to have a great time. And a special welcome to our two new One Brickers: Lisa & Wes! Our Cafe contact pulled me aside after the event and told me how impressed he was with us and the quantity of great food we were able to make. Okay, so he was a little skeptical at first, but we totally blew him out of the water. Great job!

The photos have been posted….HERE

Words From MLK on Service

Everybody can be great.  Because anybody can serve.  You don’t have to have a college degree to serve.  You don’t have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve…. You don’t have to know the second theory of thermodynamics in physics to serve.  You only need a heart full of grace.  A soul generated by love. 

~Martin Luther King, Jr.

“Thank you One Brick”

I just want to again say Thank You to you and all the volunteers who assisted in cleaning out my basement.  Ther is still a lot to do and I have no idea where this is all leading, but I sincerely thank you and God for all of the help.
 May you continue to bring peace and joy to all those you offer your service to.
– Alverine, Gary IN
