Can I Get a Witness?
How many B’s can we fit into Sunday Brunch? Blanket, basket, bottle of Kroger’s Saturday champagne best (for mimosa-mixing, of course), beautiful park, best friends, Bearfoot Hookers . . . bring it. The Second Sunday Gospel Brunch takes place just when it says it does in downtown Macon’s luscious Washington Park. It event is free. The water runs freely. You don’t have to haul your own mini bar because Bloodies and Mimosas are served from a cash bar along with $5 box brunches. If that doesn’t make your soul sing, I don’t know what will. Not only does Mom keep it marked on her little electronic calendar, but she has a hard time keeping me out of the way while she’s packing the picnic basket. I get to go! At a Second Sunday Gospel Brunch, you’ll find just as many kids as you do the furry variety. Everyone is welcome to the table – think of it like a communion of community.
The Gospel Brunch is the brainchild of the College Hill Corridor Commission (CHCC), which was formed to accomplish the primary goal of creating an attractive, safe and well-defined corridor connecting Mercer University and downtown. In other words, the CHCC wants to give Mercer students and townies alike the incentive to get out and do something in the downtown/intown area that has great hip/happening potential. For those of you in the north part of town, this means you, too. Have you seen their master plan? Visit www.collegehillcorridor.com.
Back to Gospel Brunch: Here’s the church; here’s the steeple; when service is over, come join the cool people. It’s about fellowship, y’all. And it’s free.
