    My untended garden
    A poem about seeing oppression in and outside the church . . . and doing nothing

    by Rose Niles

    I stare
    into my untended garden
    with its morning-dappled
    light barely whispering through the treetops—
    this bower encapsulating my tiny haven
    my church of light,
    this freshly longed for
    church in the world—
    when my eye spies a single leaf
    floating in air
    a graceful unlikely thing
    full of impossibilities,
    slowly it twirls
    disappearing on edge
    tauntingly there again
    as a stiff breeze shifts

  • Boston Food Justice Young Adult Volunteer – Ashley Earley

    Published October 8, 2015

    My name is Ashley Earley and I am serving as a Presbyterian Young Adult Volunteer (YAV) in Boston this year and our focus is food justice. I will be posting periodically onto this blog about various food related topics for the next year.  First, I would like to introduce myself. I am from Rock Hill, SC (just south of Charlotte, NC) and graduated from Washington University in St. Louis in May with a bachelors in biology and a minor in math. I am currently taking a gap year before going to graduate school for a master’s in plant biology and afterwards plan to go into research. I have never been to the New England area before, but I am so far really enjoying my time in Boston.


    For this year, I am serving at First Presbyterian Church in Brookline and at a non-profit called Woman and Girls Thriving in Brookline with a focus in the Healthy Food and Lifestyle working group. My role will be to learn and educate about food justice.


    Also as part of the program we will be participating in two different food challenges. From September to the end of January is the local eating challenge and February to the end of July is the SNAP (food stamp) challenge.
