We planted St. Croix Vineyard in St. Stephen, New Brunswick, on October 4, 1992. We often felt an affinity to St. Francis as we tried to care for poorer folks around us and to be available to those in need, but it was almost a decade before we realized that we had planted the church on his feast day. That surprised us. As the years passed we continued to hope that our love of God would somehow help to bring a better quality of life to people in our area. We tried to build a vibrant and positive sense of community as an antidote to loneliness, and we dreamed that economic conditions would improve for our town and the people in it. Once we brought a child psychiatrist from England to teach about parenting and we offered her to local social workers for a day of training. They said, “Why would you, being a church, offer us something that we would actually like? And why would you do this for free?” It suddenly hit us that we had been offering the people in town things that we would like rather than things that would mean something to them. Our questions regarding meaningful mission began to change.
