Planting Seeds and Throwing Rocks

So for the past 3 Tuesday nights Jim and Rene at Vincenzo’s Pizza have been giving away free pasta dinners to anyone and everyone.  I don’t think people realize just how ‘upstream’ this is.  This is fighting the currents of our culture – currents of fear and the almighty dollar.  Sure, some will criticize and say it’s just a publicity stunt.  But I have been there all 3 nights and many of the folks who ate free meals didn’t have too many nickels to rub together OR they were seemingly glad to have some friends to hang out with and didn’t have to cook.  The good thing about navigating against the current, according to my river-fishin’ friend, is that it’s easier to steer the boat.
