Watch a lovely video about the food pantry operated by St. Gregory of Nyssa Episcopal Church in San Francisco, California.

This is really what all of this God and religion stuff is all about isn't it! Sharing, caring, health and well being, concern for the neediest of us. While St. Gregory maybe a little too universalist for my taste, no one could deny that the spirit of Christ is working hard and resolutely through these fine people. Keep up the great work and God Bless You All!

Thanks for posting this! Just a small correction-- The Food Pantry, which began as a project of St. Gregory of Nyssa Episcopal Church, is now a separate nonprofit. But we continue to operate our flagship pantry at St. Gregory's. The pantry is run entirely by people who came to get food, and stayed to help out; we offer free groceries to between 7-800 people at the church every Friday.
The Food Pantry has also helped start up 18 other pantries around the Bay Area, in churches, schools, and community centers. Learn more about our work at www.thefoodpantry.org, and come visit us any Friday if you're in San Francisco.

Did you notice that the altar was the center of all of this sharing? Not just on a symbolic level, but it was physically at the center. This makes a sacramental statement that most of us forget. Wow!
