I met several strangers over the weekend. No spectacular encounters, however I noticed that my demeanor changed - I found myself "looking" for opportunities, and being friendlier.
Sunday in church was a different story. Steve came and sat with Judy and I. I really did my best to be a friend. Steve must be near 45-50 years of age. When he was in his late teens or early adult years, ,"friends" talked him into trying LSD - one time. It screwed his mind up forever. He can communicate and function but at a very simple level. I am going to do my best to be a friend. I also stopped at the back of church and greeted Greg after service. Greg chooses to be homeless, has been at least 4 years. He usually comes into church, backpack and all, and slips in a pew near the back of the sanctuary. People at church have welcomed him and he feels a part of our "family".
I hope I am available, a servant of Christ, each day not just the weekends.
