Journey Together at The Abundant Table Farm (JT@theAT) is a farm-based community for people of all ages from all churches or no church, with an emphasis in supporting youth and their families. Through joyful connection on the farm with land, food, neighbor and God, participants are supported in becoming grateful, compassionate, and justice-oriented stewards of the Earth and each other.
The bright reflection of light in diamonds is not just about the light. Nor is it just about the color refraction. Nor is it about the magic of the cutter’s skills or the setter’s craft or the polisher’s stone. It is also about wiping off the mud and gore which splashes onto the diamond. And onto our lives.
