The gatherings at the artesian well point out the need for a day time space for the homeless. (How about piping in some gentle classical music if the wish is to change the nature of the crowd? Seems like I heard it worked somewhere else.) If we want people with no place to go off the streets, doesn’t it make sense to give them a place?
When Interfaith has had opportunities, it’s met with much resistance. The programs that have been achieved have been successful. Let’s open our minds and our hearts and give them a chance. Blessings to the many volunteers who keep these programs going. At the Interfaith overnight shelter open house many homeless attended to get out of the rain. They were welcome.
Some even helped to show guests through the shelter. A young man from the library spent the day taking notes on what is available and greeted many by name. I was pleased to know that the library shares their space in a caring and concerned manner.
