And yet what this story clearly articulates is a tale of generosity. All they needed was a simple reminder, an invitation, and this community steeped in love and gratitude came together in acts of generosity that sustained the whole – one humble offering at a time, they created something nourishing and life-giving. I wonder, in exchange for offering cabbage, as the villagers did, can we offer our community hope? Instead of offering nourishing carrots, can we bring one another wisdom? Instead of bits of potatoes, can we bring the monetary means that keep any community thriving? May we love. May we be grateful. May we generously share all that we can.
