It’s hard to miss the ministry that’s growing outside St Alban’s Episcopal Church in Indianapolis. Heading up Emerson Avenue past 46th Street, any passer-by – whether nourished or hungry, devout or spiritually unsure, striving to heal or prone to violence – is confronted by a sight both grim and hopeful: dozens of white crosses stand as a memorial to the dead while surrounded by the bounty of God’s Earth, crops that eventually will provide fresh food for a neighbourhood in great need of it.
