BY TEQUILA MINSKY | Everyone knows the folk story in which hungry strangers convince townspeople that a delicious soup can be made from a stone (and the mere adding of a small amount of their food). And so it was.

Riffing on this, Judson Memorial Church offered “stone soup” following its Sunday-before-Christmas service: chicken, beef or vegetarian choices. A hearty meal for mid-December.

The soups included chicken, beef and vegetarian choices.

The event was at Judson Memorial Church, at Washington Square South.

Meanwhile, songsters surrounded the piano and enjoyed singing a medley of Christmas songs.

After lunch, Judsonites indulged in a Christmas carol songfest.
