I love my “job”: helping volunteers love our outcast clients; watching a group of youth yell “play it again” to a sermon on Romans 5:6-11; helping social workers deliver care; walking clients through tough choices, receiving a thank you: “The old me fought you and your message. The new me: well, I stick up for the message.” And being prayed for by a client no longer on the street and full of faith and hope. All just today. God is good.

We’ve done several community conversations with student groups lately. We helped students share good and bad experiences at a mediation event recently. Keep it up!
I dream of student led responses to help homeless in Austin. That would be awesome (although I recommend learning through organizations that already serve the homeless for 18 months or so, so you learn quickly before leading your own efforts).
