These past three months have been a wonderful time of learning for me as I prepare to lead a team, run a business, and serve a community. It has also been a time of transition from primarily sitting behind a computer planning the systems and creating spreadsheets, to preparing the space and meeting all the folks who poke their heads in. With each visitor I’ve been able to share in their enthusiasm about a laundromat and cafe here in our neighborhood. Its difficult to sum up all the change that has taken place over the last few months, as well as all the amazing people who have contributed their time, resources and creativity to this project. I invite you to experience it first hand as we open our doors to our community and the world!
Please continue to pray for The Commons to be a profitable business and to spark other neighborhood-focused businesses along Mack Ave. Please also be in prayer for the staff of The Commons, that we could care well for everyone who comes into our space, and that God would be glorified through our actions.
