Monday night, Vine Street hosted a group of Immokalee farm workers. It was good to share dinner and prayers with them, and many Nashville friends joined them for a vigil at our neighborhood Publix store. We pray for a safe journey home for them and for success in their quest for better work conditions and wages.
