The Turquoise Table by Kristin Schell

At this month’s live Women’s Ministry Council event, in the Treasure Coast FL, we will be giving away two copies of Kristin Schell’s book “The Turquoise Table”.

Quite simply, author Kristin Schell set out to foster community within her neighborhood by putting a turquoise painted picnic table in her front yard.  It became a place to meet and connect with her neighbors and community.

A simple step on her part became a movement as turquoise tables started popping up in yards in other communities and neighborhoods.

It compelled me to think not only about putting a turquoise picnic table in my own yard, but I thought about all of those churches that are nestled in the middle of neighborhoods and communities where people walk by.  What if these houses of worship had picnic tables in their front yards?  What if the Pastors and staff popped out there for lunch instead of eating in their offices?

Just a thought.
