Lent 2 – Giving Out: The Power of a Gift

Leave a comment

The second of my thoughts from following Christ and the Chocolaterie which in turn uses the film Chocolat

This is about Giving Out and reflecting on the power of giving.

Try and remember times when others have done something or said something that made you feel loved and accepted

Armande Voisin (played by Judi Dench) an old lady with diabetes, makes her first visit the chocolate shop and tastes her first hot chocolate with chilli. It is the start of regular visits and a growing relationship between Armande and Vianne.

Vianne is also helping Josephine Muscat who has been abused by her husband. Vianne has provided refuge and a job in the chocolate shop for Josephine. Meanwhile the Comte de Reynard is providing support to Serge Muscat to turn his life around.

Chocolate Stirrer

A chocolate stirrer, that I have yet to make hot chocolate with, however I doubt I will add chilli.

Think about being hospitable to someone over the next few weeks. Remember that the power of giving can have a profound effect on the recipient.
