Good Grace

We are truly very blessed and in trying to remember to say Grace before every meal, I stumbled upon a good prayer...

Almighty God, whose loving hand

has given us all that we possess:

Grant us grace that we may

honor you with our substance,

and, remembering the account

which we must one day give,

may be faithful stewards of your bounty,

through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

-- from the Book of Common Prayer, For the Right Use of God's Gifts

Overregulation of the food system is the problem, stop proposed bill S-510 which is another government attempt to curtail your freedom to buy the food you love. It will benefit the industrial food system and imports, two sectors of the food system that cripple our future through illness and unsustainability.
