In yesterday's newspaper there was a story of a farmer who allowed the public to harvest what was missed. 40,000 people showed up and took away hundreds of baskets of food.
The operation manager for the 600 acre farm estimated that the people harvested 600,000 pounds of produce. The sheriff said there were probably 11,000 vehicles parked on 30 acres of land. Allowing people to collect the gleanings is based on a biblical custom. It is comforting to know that there are people like Joe and Chris Miller.
There is a miraculous aspect to the story that the newspaper reporter did not appreciate because we no longer believe in miracles.
While you are enjoying your turkey, and recounting your blessings, think about the Second Harvest.
