I am Jim Walling the Pastor at Parkway UMC. This is an eclectic, expanding and Spirit following church community. To prove that to you, we want your shoes?!?
We are part of a ministry that collects old/used shoes and redistributes them to start up entrepreneurs in Third World countries. Those entrepreneurs will refurbish the shoes, if necessary and then sell them. As a collection point for the shoes Parkway will receive monies for each pound of shoes.
In the beginning these monies will be dedicated to a solar water system to run our ministries ... an outdoor shower, open from 6am to 8pm seven days a week, for our local homeless folks, the working poor of our neighborhood, or anybody who needs a hot shower. We also need hot water for washing dishes ... we prepare two "Holy Meals" each week, Wednesday night, 5:00-6:30 pm and Sunday Mornings, 9-10am for anyone who is hungry.
So, we need lots of hot water and need your shoes!
God Bless. Grace and Peace,
The Fruitful Field seeks God's peace and wholeness by caring for the earth, sharing
with those in need, and fostering spiritual health. We model creative and sustainable
use of land, provide dynamic hands-on learning opportunities for all ages, and build
healthy relationships with the local community and beyond.The Garden exists
to re-connect people and creation with each other and with God.
While gently worn shoes are preferred, shoes will be accepted in all conditions.
Individuals, businesses and organizations that would like to participate in the shoe drive or host a collection box please let us know.
