“I do not understand the mystery of grace - only that it meets us where we are and does not leave us where it found us. ”

The people of the Amherst Community Church come from a variety of religious traditions. This makes for an interesting mix!

The Spirit Disrupts
Acts 10:44-48 (The Message)
It looks like a burger. Cooks like a burger. Tastes like a burger. And even "bleeds" like a burger. But there's no beef in it. Instead, the burger is made out of a plant-based beef alternative, with "bleeding" that comes from beet juice. The burger is produced by a company called Beyond Meat.
If you're looking for a meat alternative to throw on your grill, you can now buy the ready-to-cook Beyond Burger at Whole Foods. It's located right next to the real meat, so you can make your own decision about plant versus animal protein. Beyond Meat is a health-driven disruption in the food business. This is the phrase the business magazine Fast Company uses -- health-driven disruption. More often than not, change requires disruption. And in case you think Beyond Meat won’t make it as a company, in 2020 it amassed $406.8 million in revenue.
