We thought we would have missed the reveal, but still would be able to enjoy the celebration. After a long week of hard work, time and dedication, it was finally done, and finally here. The neighborhood came out to enjoy the celebration and welcome their new neighbors. But when we got there, we recognized that we had something in common with the owners. They run on Pinkel time! So we had some time to wait for the reveal!
Part of the Kensington Community Church tradition, whenever they break ground for a new church, is to drive a stake into the ground to claim the land for God. That day, they along with volunteers and a new pastor in the area, trying to start his own church, drove a stake into the ground of the park. The same park where they host free bbq’s in the neighborhood, establishing that they are committed to helping and giving to a community that so richly needs it.
Jim Pritchard was the director of the house build.
I was lucky enough to be right in front of everyone to get their faces when the trucks moved and try and capture their emotions.
