Newsletter Updates for the Week of April 17, 2017

Welcome from Haywood Street:

On the evening of 
May 9th, ‘A Seat at the Table’ will be held at Rhubarb/The Rhu. This event will highlight the partnership between Haywood Street and a number of our most dedicated partner chefs. It will serve as an opportunity to introduce Haywood Street to the Asheville community and to raise funds in an effort to support the long-term sustainability of The Downtown Welcome Table. Although the event is now sold out, you may follow this link to view more information and to read about a couple of exciting, and very generous, auction items.

A big thank you to Black Mountain Ale House for this past Wednesday’s meal and our utmost gratitude for Rhubarb who will be joining us on Sunday.

“Talking Back to Our Fears” – Sermon by Rev. Brian Combs, 4/19/17

A Haywood Reflection from Sascha:

Working with everyone at Haywood Street embodies my basic values. Everyone has a basic right to food, shelter and basic healthcare. We’re all in this life together. We’re all born, we all die and in between there’s a lot of variability (different outfits and adventures).

Being a companion at Haywood Street gives me the regular perspective adjustments that I need to focus on what really is important. Being a companion nurtures my sense of purpose; touching the lives of others with kindness, compassion and laughter (carbonated holiness).

I enjoy a variety of sharing from working in the garden to working in the clothing closet and serving meals, especially on holidays. Each offers a unique opportunity for connection with others…and connection is really what life is all about. We are all chosen. We are all loved.

– Sascha Frowine
