advent journal: prep work


    I’m not sure how much preparing
    food for five hundred is like
    preparing the way of the Lord,
    but I’ve had morning, afternoon,
    and evening to think about it.

    The best division of labor was
    to choose and do one thing:
    I grilled vegetables – squash,
    actually – for an hour or two.
    It was not the featured food,

    but it was my part in getting
    ready, my contribution as a
    member of the company of
    cooks assigned to prepare the
    meal on this (almost) wintry night.
