SOUL STORY

I have been thinking about the JBJ SOUL KITCHEN quite a lot these days. How important it is to so many, and now, in our plague-ravaged world, even more so than usual.

I think about the people behind the JBJ SOUL KITCHEN. I think about its founders and the good people who comprise its small cadre of paid staff as well as the many kindhearted and extremely dedicated volunteers who generously give of themselves. I think upon Dorothea and Jon, sharing their time freely and joyfully. There is an old Chinese proverb that says: “An ounce of gold cannot buy a minute of time.” It is time, this most precious resource, a commodity which we all possess in varying quantities, that cannot be bought, but which nonetheless is given freely.

Our hold on time is tenuous at best as we all, each and every one of us, possess it in an unknown and truly limited quantity. To give of oneself, one’s time is a most precious gift. Many would say it is THE most precious gift we have to offer.

Time, that is the gift that the staff has chosen to share with their fellow man too, through the JBJ SOUL KITCHEN. Staffers have consciously chosen, vocationally, to work in their fields, their professions, in one of the most challenging situational environments imaginable. In addition to their work as chefs, managers, and facilitators, daily the staffers are called upon to be at once friends, stand-in family, mediators, social workers, and advocates. They too have chosen to share their precious gift of time with their fellow man.

Time, that is the gift that all the volunteers have chosen to share with their fellow man as well. They have consciously, and joyfully, decided to give of themselves to brighten, and better, the lot of others. That is giving in its truest sense. Time is precious. Time is priceless. Time is the greatest gift we possess. And, those who share their limited time are truly giving selflessly of themselves. Thank you, one and all at the JBJ SOUL KITCHEN Red Bank, Toms River and Rutgers Newark, for sharing this most precious gift of life: time with your fellow man.
