CSA Harvest: May 29, 2011

New this week: grass-fed (naturally 93% lean) ground beef from a new supplier, a bumpy & fun variety of cucumber, broccoli, and an easy and filling hamburger curry onion pie recipe.

Choices: We got to choose 2 summer squash and I picked one of each type. In addition, we had the choice between scarlet queen turnips, red russian kale, and rainbow chard. Because it is probably the last time we'll have kale (summer heat is not good for this cool-weather leafy green), I picked kale.

CSA Harvest: May 8, 2011

Small Farms CSA on Wordpress New this week: kohl rabi (super yeah!), red Russian kale, 12 dozen eggs, salad radishes, green garlic, a very satisfiying soup recipe (see the kale's Cooking section for details), and new ways to store greens to keep them yummy for longer.

We start the biweekly meat share next week with a whole chicken! The eggs we'll be getting biweekly, as well, but on opposite weeks from the meat. Our every-four-weeks share of goat cheese chevre from Decimal Place Farm will also be appearing in the next couple of weeks.


CSA Harvest: May 1, 2011 (We're back!)

New this week: This is first portion of the 2011 spring/summer season's share, so everything is new, especially strawberries.

We got to choose 2 bunches from a number of lettuce varieties.  We will start the meat share in 2 weeks, and might have eggs next week.


Christian Hospitality as Intentional Vulnerability

ironically inhospitable church parking sign: welcome church visitors, all others park elsewhere, violators will be towed at owner expense True godliness doesn't turn [humans] out of the world, but enables them to live better in it, and excites their endeavors to mend it. ~ William Penn

Grounded in the restorative theology of the Church of the Brethren, I give a detailed outline of my proposed theology of hospitality as being “intentional vulnerability.” I then explore the practical application of that theology through my model of a queer bible study. I conclude by briefly encouraging churches to adopt this theology of hospitality as central to their work.
