Soup Kitchen Wisdom

I work at the soup kitchen in a neighboring church that feeds three to four hundred homeless five days a week. Last week a group of us sat around after the evening meal and one volunteer had a wonderful perspective that she shared with us.” I have been coming here for over two years and have heard many stories about how people wound up being homeless. So many of them led very ordinary lives at one point but circumstances and challenges forced their downward spiral. It reminds me that everyone I come in contact with has at least one burden, and some may not be visible but they are struggling. That awareness has made me less judgmental and more forgiving and the reality is I came here to help but I am receiving more than I am giving.”Amazing that sermons which help us happen when we least expect them.
