Giving a Pounding
THE POUNDING — This custom dates back to pioneer days, and was practiced widely. I don't know its origins, but it's something we should continue today.
When a couple got married and set up housekeeping, it was customary to have a "pounding party". This meant that each guest brought a pound of something: flour, salt, butter — whatever was needed to stock a house — in order to give their friends a good start on their new life.
I had this done when Valerie and I first got married. The Church helped give us a "Pounding."
When we first started a new ministry we have had several ministries help stock us up for food as we moved.
I wonder if churches still do this?
