    Thanks again for your honesty, and willingness to “color outside the lines” as they say. I reread your post on your working with the homeless. In the last year or so, I have begun to develop a burden to touch peoples lives more. In particular I have felt a very strong desire and burden to work with the homeless myself. I often engage people I meet on the street, so many times my heart just breaks, I want to know better how to share the Lord with them,
    I would however like to be involved with people who engage the homeless more often. I would love to speak with you sometime about the people you work with, and how I could perhaps get involved in some way.
    I know (or I have been told) that there are a couple of “tent cities” around Gainesville, I would like to go visit them, have you ever been to any , or heard of any?, Just curious. Thanks again for remaining faithful to Him. John Morris.

      John, I moved out of Gainesville years ago. All you need to do is search for “homeless” and the biggest city near you, and you’ll get lots of organizations and ministries. The St. Francis house in Gainesville is one I like. But there are scores of others.

    About the world’s view of us, God has to constantly reminded me that “blessing and cursing (not the so-called four letter words) should not come out of our mouths”. I am too quick to say something negative about someone and then turn around and bless someone. To be critical about someone is to judge, and that need not be so. I am so very guilty about this, and am diligently working on that behavior.
