How To Stuart YOUR OWN Community
1—You’ll be updated as we progress. What’s your email?
2—Find the WHY—the How comes second. (We vowed to work at this through 2020)
3—Our website was free for the first year from Weebly, and you can search ‘free websites’. We hope to have the local newspaper run it, after it’s profitable. http://www.feedlocallystuartcommunity.com/
4—Our Facebook Page: Feed Locally Stuart Community https://www.facebook.com/search/top/?q=feed%20locally%20stuart%20community
5—THE NEED 40% + of our school students qualify for free or reduced price lunches. 400,000+ of Iowans use Supplemental Nutrition/SNAP/’food stamps’. One in 8 is food stressed, and we are living in some of the best agricultural land in the world. These are easily searched.

9—THE COMMAND Matthew 25:35-40 King James Version (KJV)
35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. 37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? 38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? 39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
10—With sprouting, you can have fresh food year ‘round. In less than a week!11—Our basic plan is for people to grow (more) garden, and share the produce. 1st year, pots? Also, don’t forget fruit trees and permaculture, and saving seeds. Heirloom beats GMO.
12—We are more network than hierarchy, and pray that churches and others will compete to find the hungry and to feed them. We try to buy locally. To ‘stuart,’ we pray, will come to mean that hunger is minimized by feeding locally the community. Will there be tourists? Many videos on YouTube, etc.?

Thus ends the One Page. Below is deep background.
Charles writing: I'm attempting to add 'to stuart' to the vocabulary of Christendom, that is, the vocabulary of civilization, as we try to feed locally and minimize hunger by growing (more) garden and sharing. I earnestly invite you, please. Love in King Jesus. (I'm following Eugen Rosenstock-Huessy here, who said in Universal History 1954 that the glorification of the tribes would be small, enthusiastic groups (not on the warpath) as Israel was glorified in the church by getting rid of exclusions, and as empires were glorified in the nation-state by getting rid of slavery. [There's some question there about how well we did that]. It's the next 1000 years, he said, however long that is.
He also said that we would lose the ability to speak in America, by which he meant ‘true speech.’ Where one’s life is put behind one’s words, vowing. We’ve vowed to continue through 2020. We are truly speaking. This is one of 53, one for each book of a 49-book Bible, literarily conceived, and the total, and 3 mountains in time of ‘liturgy’ through the year, based on Jordan’s ‘Rethinking the Order of the Old Testament’ at BiblicalHorizons.com.
I’m also claiming that this is 5th generation warfare, spiritually. In modern times, theorists (Lind) say, firt generation was Napoleon’s massed armies, 2nd was artillery, third was tanks, and 4th was insurgents plus media (e. g. Viet Nam). Lind doesn’t agree that 5th generation is separate, but it’s ‘nets and jets’—network, not hierarchy, and something to carry biowar and nanowar quickly around the world. We’re using the internet.
More to come. His lectures (and transcripts) are online at ERH Fund--free. A good introduction: https://plato.stanford.edu/entries/rosenstock-huessy/
