For food pantry volunteer it’s a way of life

[FEB. 19 2000]  The least flower, with a brimming cup, may stand.  And share its dew-drop with another near."  Elizabeth Barrett Browning reflects on sharing with others; benevolence.  Altruism is the giving of self to others in kindness when not expecting anything in return.  In fact, psychologists tell us that this sort of selfless giving makes us better and happier people.  The Lincoln Food Pantry, located on the northwest corner of Broadway and Logan Street, is this sort of benevolent service to the community and Judy Parmenter is but one of the good neighbors who volunteers her time to help others.

The morning I spent at Second Baptist and a subsequent interview with the Rev. Glenn Shelton, pastor of the congregation, allowed me to move beyond academic knowledge of the African American church and allowed me to see the living expression of faith by the family of believers in this church. It is a church that is integrated in both flesh and spirit, in both body and soul. My time there gave me a deeper understanding of the importance of this church for all citizens and people of faith.
