"Bread for myself is a material question. Bread for my neighbor is a spiritual one." Nicholas Berdyaev

Today we continued work on the sites we were working on at the end of last week, but with a whole new crew. A two person crew went up to finish the tiling site from last week. The report back was that the home looked great and that the homeowner was so happy to bring her bed back into her bedroom. It will be the first time she has slept in her bed since the flood over a year ago.

Another group went up to continue on with the soffits and fascia. They are within 45 minutes of finishing, but the weather just got too hot. The same was true with the ramp we were finishing up right near by and the site in Lilydale. All three of those should only take another day.

We also continued work right up the street from us, hanging paneling, dry walling and mudding. Work was also started on a ramp and stairs that will be constructed partly out of already made platforms and partly new construction. It will be quite a site when all is finished.

For dinner tonight we were treated with chili and rice, both the meat and the veggie varieties. It was delicious and topped off with German chocolate cake. Yummy.

As usual, in the evening we gathered for reflection. Tonight we reflected on judgments. Times when we felt judged and times when maybe we judged someone. It was a very thought provoking reflection.
