Mine for the giving
I gave the woman a Dunkin Donuts gift card and told her to get something hot. She didn't thank me. She said, "Those mittens look warm."
I recently spent a night on the streets of London. I had two companions, who wondered if I was checking up on them in some way.
A homeless mission in the city
I once nailed the doors of my church shut. I needed to keep a burglar out who'd been looking for something to huff. Still, it seemed so antigospel.
Learning from new Christians
The opportunity arose for our church to host a group of homeless people. We anticipated that people might threaten to leave if we went through with it. We weren't prepared, however, for the newly baptized Kathryn.
I'm a big fan of
street newspapers, and in particular of StreetWise
in Chicago, one of 100
such newspapers in over 38 countries.
