Southern Ohio: Beans and Grapes, serving the community and God

first_img Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Featured Events Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY [Interchange: Episcopal Diocese of Southern Ohio] Community building, relationship and stewardship epitomize the goals of a new ministry in Cincinnati. All Saints Episcopal Church, Pleasant Ridge, celebrated the grand opening of Beans and Grapes in mid-December.A coffee house and wine bar, Beans and Grapes began as a Pleasant Ridge business with a focus on the community’s own vision of its future. It was conceived following several years of community conversations, an assessment of the needs of Pleasant Ridge and a desire to be of help in fulfilling a vision for a safe, collaborative, neutral space that was neighborhood-centered and community-driven.The Rev. Eileen O’Reilly welcomes a group in the community space, Greet and Gather. Photo: InterchangeSpearheaded by the Rev. Eileen O’Reilly and the congregation of All Saints, partnerships with people throughout the community and beyond grew through both individuals and corporations, private and public, who caught Pleasant Ridge’s vision for a different kind of community space.When O’Reilly first arrived as rector of All Saints, she wanted to understand the local community and its needs. She spent nearly two years meeting with parishioners and people from the neighborhood. A distinct need soon became apparent: the need for a community meeting or gathering place.“I kept hearing that there was no neutral location or space to meet, especially for evening meetings that extend beyond 8 p.m.,” said O’Reilly.So, O’Reilly brainstormed ideas of how to provide a community space – as well as to find ways to pay for it. She looked at what the community already offered and what would suit it. The combination coffee house-wine bar seemed to be a great fit, especially after Pleasant Ridge was named an “entertainment district” by the city, O’Reilly said. That designation makes it easier for restaurants (as well as Beans and Grapes) to get liquor licenses.Once the concept was in place, O’Reilly sought and received generous support from the Diocese of Southern Ohio, All Saints and the neighborhood.The next step was to find the location.“We went looking and looking for space,” she said. Ultimately they ended up at 6200 Montgomery Road, just a few blocks from the church.After they completed the build-out on the property and ironed out all the other details, the business was ready to open.Growing Beans and GrapesBeans and Grapes is an informal, neighborhood place where people can gather for a cup of coffee or glass of wine. It also offers pastries and cupcakes. Patrons can relax on comfortable couches and chairs, and local groups can conduct meetings in one of two rooms designed especially for this purpose. The charge for using the meeting rooms is on a sliding scale.Beans and Grapes supports the community by offering the meeting rooms, builds relationships among neighbors as a gathering place and acts as a good steward in every facet of the business. A paid staff person and a volunteer usually are on hand to serve customers and tend the business.The manager, Deanna Martin, was a campus minister at Xavier University when a friend told her about the job at Beans and Grapes.“I had always wanted a restaurant, so I was really excited about Beans and Grapes and its mission,” said Martin.One way patrons and workers are reminded of Beans and Grapes’ mission is a quote from the Dutch priest and writer Henry Nouwen that is featured prominently in its décor, seen by everyone who walks in the door: “Hospitality is a space around us that we create for others in which they can come be themselves, and discover who they are.”Another way the center seeks to build and strengthen the local community is by showcasing local artists and musicians.Grounded in stewardshipActing as good stewards is also an integral part of Beans and Grapes’ business model, said O’Reilly.“The wood floor was made from reconstructed rubber tires. The coffee we serve supports 20 coffee growers in Guatemala. We serve fair-trade chocolate,” she said. “Everything we’ve done has been with the idea that we are stewards, and we’re supporting community sources.”The building has energy- and water-saving infrastructure, and all paper products in Beans and Grapes are 100 percent compostable/recyclable. Baked goods sold at Beans and Grapes are made by local bakers and include vegan and gluten-free products.Beans and Grapes tapped into Deeper Roots Development, a nonprofit organization that works with the coffee growers in Guatemala. They buy the coffee beans from Deeper Roots, roast and then sell it.So far, the business at Beans and Grapes is doing well, said Martin.“The coffee business is growing every day, and we’ve already had a lot of groups using the meeting rooms.”These groups include Bible studies, diocesan staff for a retreat and a group committed to a raw-food diet.“It’s about right relationships with growers, baristas, the community,” said Martin. “I love coming in and welcoming people.”Future goalsBeans and Grapes, along with its community meeting spaces called Greet and Gather, are two of five business components under development. The nonprofit umbrella company for all five segments is called Sacred Grounds.A call-a-thon was held to raise funds for Sacred Grounds on Jan. 26. An ongoing fundraiser allows people to purchase a brick and have a person or organization’s name placed on it for placement in a wall in Beans and Grapes.In the future, Sacred Grounds plans to offer a school to teach people how to cater and cook (Learn and Create), a catering company whose initial purpose is to serve churches after funerals and for other social gatherings (Cook and Feed) and an incubator kitchen, where local artisans can make sufficient quantities of their food products for sale (Collaborate and Grow).These segments are knit together by their commitment to service and community, said O’Reilly.“The catering company will eventually supply food for the coffee shop,” she said. And these businesses will result in additional benefits for the community in the form of new jobs and educational opportunities for kids in the neighborhood.It all comes back to community, building relationships, and stewardship, and all for the purpose of serving God, said O’Reilly. “Everything we’re trying to do, we’re doing for the glory of God.”This article first appeared in the December 2012-January 2013 issue of Interchange, the newspaper of the Episcopal Diocese of Southern Ohio.

Schalk Burger crunching hit on Fourie Du Preez

first_imgSunday Oct 18, 2009 Schalk Burger crunching hit on Fourie Du Preez It was Currie Cup Semi final day yesterday in South Africa, as the Sharks hosted the Cheetahs in Durban, and the Bulls travelled to Cape Town to challenge Western Province. The Bulls won 21-19, thanks to a late Morne Steyn penalty. ADVERTISEMENTThe Newlands match was set to be a classic, as both sides were scattered with Springbok talent, as well as talented youngsters who served their sides well while the international players were on Test duty.For Western Province, flanker Schalk Burger was named on the bench after he came away from the Tri Nations with a rib injury that his kept him sidelined since then.Many questioned coach Alistair Coetzees tactics of playing Burger off the bench in what would be such a fierce physical encounter, against the likes of Pierre Spies, Danie Rossouw, and Bakkies Botha.Schalk was cleared this week, but the guys have been playing well in that loose trio, Coetzee said.We have to keep those systems going. Its great to have a Bok like Schalk on the bench, and Im sure hell have a big impact when he comes on in the second half.Coetzee was right, as Burger came on and made this monstrous hit on Bok teammate, scrumhalf Fourie Du Preez midway through the second half.ADVERTISEMENTThe hit brought the 48 000 strong Newlands crowd to its feet, a poignant moment in the career of the man who received so much castigation for his actions earlier in the season.The reaction of the crowd and his teammates pretty much said it all, as Burger signalled his return to the game once again with moment that typified the way he has, and always will play the game at 110%.It was good to see teammate Du Preez acknowledge the hit with a grin, and Burger himself with a little wink, no doubt in his Test teammates direction.We’ll get a better quality version of this up soon, as well as highlights from both closely contested matches.ADVERTISEMENTTime: 0:52 Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Playlast_img read more
