Mercy Gardens is a non-profit organization that grows healthy, organic food that will be used to make meals for the hungry at the Good Samaritan Inn. Along with providing food to the hungry, Mercy Gardens also provides opportunities for low-income Decatur residents to learn about gardening and to get real work experience. These citizens work at Mercy Gardens planting produce, while doing this they learn techniques and practices in organic farming that will aid them in finding reliable jobs in the future. As a class we volunteered our time to help allow Mercy Gardens to operate more efficiently in the upcoming winter months. With snowfall on the horizon it is always a challenge to plant crops in the dead of winter.

    Basic Introduction: Process theology is defined as “a contemporary expression of Christian faith.”(5) Though the word, “contemporary expression” can have different connotations, in my view, according to one’s understanding and perspective it lets the reader contemplate on the idea about how one’s personal understanding can, or is a part of one’s course of action. Pointing to the word “expression,” one can also perceive the inclusion of orthopraxis, (Dancing with God, 34) which further leads one…

The essence of the word corresponding is that Adam…
