I am shocked that I FINALLY found someone out there who thinks SHARING the meal with the homeless is key to ministering to them. I am so excited to find this post. Please check it out!

What happens when you share a meal with someone?
You are equals, and each person brings something to the table.
There’s a danger associated with soup kitchens and “drive-by” ministries that feed the homeless; it divides us.
I observed something interesting with a friend one day at Retreat from the Street. Retreat from the Street is a community of REMERGE.
The typical schedule for our time together is to gather at 9:30 for Bible study and prayer, then to break for lunch around 11:30. Lunch is prepared by members of the community and typically very delicious. After the study, I was served a meal and began to eat.
As I was eating, a friend named Tycone approached me and told me how glad he was to see that I was sharing a meal with them. I asked him why he was surprised.
