our daily (Panera) bread

Did you catch this news by Panera Bread? They have it a new stride by creating new locations where customers can't find any prices on the menu, but simply pay what they want and think is "fair."

A buddy of mine in town does this everyday via CUPS Cafe - they've been doing it for three years and haven't missed a rent payment yet, relying upon the collective vision of others who want to feed those in our area a dignified and delicious meal who otherwise couldn't afford one. Our church is one of its supporters, as we believe in this concept Jesus put forth to take care of each other.

Imagine that.
"And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased." (Hebrews 13:16)
How can you apply this principle in your field of leadership?

  1. I stopped by CUPS a few minutes this afternoon and witnessed a few cool things.

    1) A boy, maybe 12 or 13, served his younger sister a bowl of chili

    2) Another boy, about the same age, reminded his younger sisters to use their manners. He also noticed the donation box and asked about it. I told him it was there for people who want to donate. He said he wanted to help.

    Wonder who's getting "paid" here?
