Caritas, Charis and Community
In 2006 a social activist named Onie Johns saw the need to start up a Community Center in the Binghampton area of Memphis. I came across this delightful (and fairly famous) social experiment while looking for a new home for our GC Memphis Church.
Mac Edwards featured here bowled us over with his friendliness. The mission is to provide meals and a place of instruction and respite in the midst of a busy city. It runs on the “Pay it Forward” principle – if you can afford it chip in for someone who can't. This keeps the ball rolling in a positive direction. And the food tastes pretty good too!
One more plus for innovative Memphis people.
