>Corners and Coins

>
Have you seen Corners, the Nooma that draws its name from the ancient practice of leaving the edges of fields unharvested for others to glean (ex., Lev 19:9-10)? Over Christmas a few of us were talking about what that teaching could look like today in our non-agrarian society.

Today in class a gentleman shared how his church tries to live this. Members collect their spare change and bring it to church whenever there is a 5th weekend in a month. This money is donated to MCC, the Mennonite international development and relief agency.

I liked the sound of it. We save our change and have used it for Christmas and birthday presents for the past couple years, but this takes it to another level. I think this should be in addition to planned giving. What do you think? And what other ways could this ancient teaching be lived today?
