Feeding Bodies - Nourishing Spirits - Strengthening Communities

Thank you for joining us as we journey through life with our Capuchin Soup Kitchen guests, volunteers, and partners in ministry.  Often it's easy to forget that we each have a story to tell.  Our blog is to help remind all of us that each individual at the Capuchin Soup Kitchen is a gift from God and we have much to learn from one another.  To contact us about the blog email us here:

Oh, the Wisdom of Our Detroit Children

A sweet thing happened this afternoon.

Last week the eight new mums we planted in the front garden were stolen. Disappointed, I decided there would be no more new mums to be snatched away. However, our several rose bushes have never touched (too difficult to steal?).


Coping in a Gentle and Grateful Way

Today I was driving Scott, one of our guests who has a mental illness, to the warehouse for food and clothing. We passed a church sign that said something like: “All Glory and Honor to God.”


Hopes Being Realized

Have been thinking a lot about change. Summer is waning. Temperatures are decreasing. Hours of daylight are diminishing.


The Leadership That Keeps on Giving

Recently, I was talking with Cynthia Lockhart when she mentioned something that she experienced with the choir. Cynthia is the director of the Capuchin Soup Kitchen Choir that is made up of guests who come to eat and a few who volunteer at the soup kitchen.
