'With what can we compare the Kingdom of God, or what parable will we use for it? It is like a mustard seed, which, when sown upon the ground, is the smallest of all the seeds on earth- yet when it is sown it grows up and becomes the greatest of all shrubs, and puts forth large branches, so that the birds of the air can make nests in the shade.'
Mark 4:30-32

My journey from fear to love began over 75 years ago. Orphaned and homeless at 18-months-of-age produced its own DNA: fear of annihilation. Simultaneously with my childhood experience of losing home and parent came the blessing of two homes and families. One was my aunt and uncle’s home & family. One was a church home and family. The two were a powerful pair.

I’ve only been in Denver for about eight months, but I have discovered and been fortunate to become part of one of the most interesting Church services in the city. At 8:00 am, every Sunday morning at the St. Francis Center, we gather for a Eucharist that is shared with people in the shelter.

I was raised on a shoestring, and I never feel like I have any money. Even if I have fifty dollars cash in my wallet, I always feel broke. When I pass someone with a sign “Homeless, Anything Helps, God Bless,” I have no idea what to do. Do I give $1 to that person, knowing it won't help much and may insult them? Do I break out a twenty, knowing it may actually help them, then feel deprived? And do I give money away, knowing it may be used for alcohol or drugs? Whether I give or not, how do I treat these folks? Do I nod and smile, or avoid their eyes? What happens to them when I walk away? Where do they go?
