"Do you serve breakfast?", a man asked when he opened the door into Bread & Water cafe. "8 a.m. to 3 p.m." replied Rev. Valerie Fons, appointed pastor on site. He looked at the cross positioned front and center in the dining room, paused, and asked ,"Do you serve people who are not religious?" Rev. Fons replied, "We are open to all, and honor your tradition." With teen staff, Bread & Water, a UMC extension ministry in a specialized site on Washington Island, Door County, Wisconsin, serves food for body and soul. The cafe, lodging, and kayak eco-tour ministry practices Henri Nouwen's definition of hospitality -- making room for the other and John Wesley's mandate to do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as everyou can. "When the diner saw the cross as a barrier instead of welcome," Rev. Fons reflected, "I was grieved, but encouraged in ministry. Wearing an apron and offering breakfast all day, I'm preaching the good news." Click here for more information.
