Bring God’s kingdom on earth
There is nothing on earth quite like the Yellow Deli. It is a place where we can all work together on common ground. Every person and position is vitally necessary. What would we do without the dishwasher, or sandwich maker, or the bakers, or the drink-bar girl, or the host? It is like our human body, where every member is vitally important. This is the essence of our life together in the Community — the Body of Messiah — everyone is necessary and needed in every way. No one is overlooked or unimportant. This is where we come to know the love of God, through our brothers and sisters, as we all give all we have to love and care for one another and for those who come to visit our homes and our delis.
One of our homes is actually another little beehive of activity — this is where we home school our children. We have the most wonderful devoted teachers working together to invest in our precious children. We have a pretty thorough curriculum that we have developed over the years, which seems to challenge and stimulate our children causing them to learn and grow.
The high point of our life is our morning and evening gatherings, where we all gather in a circle and share our hearts, songs, dancing and prayers. Afterwards, we share a meal together with gladness and sincerity of heart. On Friday afternoon, we close the deli at 3pm. Then we gather at 6pm in our homes for a special Sabbath Eve celebration. This is an especially wonderful time for people to come and get to know us, as we are all home and available for fellowship. There is always lots of good sharing of hearts, a special meal, and festive dancing. We would be very honored for you to come!
