Feeding Ourselves, Feeding the County: A Story of the Middletown Community Garden

The early spring day feels sunny and warm, easily in the low 70’s. Sparrow Daydancer and Punkie Lachnit sit on a raised garden bed filled with budding purple and green kale, sharing about their work with the Middletown Community Garden. Started in 2018 as part of North Coast Opportunities (NCO) Gardens Project, it serves as a place for gardeners and aspiring gardeners to work a plot of land.

Nationally known Norman Vincent Peale paid visit to San Antonio's Little Church of La Villita

It’s an interesting story of the church, an alcoholic, a carillon and Dr. Peale … all in one. This is my transcript of a sermon he gave, probably in the mid-1980s. I grew up in Scarsdale, N.Y., less than a 30-minute drive on Sunday mornings from lower Manhattan and Peale’s church at 29th Street and Fifth Avenue. I was already living in San Antonio but still getting mailed cassette (tapes) of his Sunday sermons. When I heard this one, my jaw dropped. I think the story may have been repeated in his autobiography.

Despite the COVID-19 pandemic making the celebration of the bicentennial difficult, the congregation is now happy to hold space for the 201st.
