Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen

No Judgment in this Room

In Love, Prose on June 26, 2014 at 6:15 pm


There is no judgment in this place, Holy Apostles. I love that banner that hangs in the sanctuary, declaring THERE ARE NO OUTCASTS IN THE EPISCOPAL CHURCH. Everyone is welcomed just as they are. Stand on the soup kitchen line, you will get a ticket and a meal, no questions asked.

As a volunteer here, no one asks me intrusive questions either, such as what my reasons or motives are for being here. I am given a job and get to work. Robert and I have become the king and queen of Wednesday beverages.

There is never any judgment in this room, at the Writers’ Workshop. We all write and share what we have written. There is support and encouragement but absolutely no judgment. I am my own worst critic of my writing. The only judgment here is me of myself.
