Some of us have been feeding hungry people at the library on various days. We’ve had our biggest responses on Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays. Those are the days that other churches or organizations do not feed people. We’re hoping to be able to commit to feeding regularly on those days.
Currently, a few of us feed people on Sundays after church. Two of us are planning to go on Monday around 2pm. Basically we heat pre-made sandwiches, etc. (about 25 minutes) and bring them to the library where we meet up with hungry people, feed them, sit down and hang out with them for a few minutes and listen to their stories, finding out more about them. At times, we pray, invite them to church, etc. (We have several people who come to Deep Water because we hang out with them there.)
We’re not looking to create a big program, we’re just looking to love people the way Jesus told us to love people. It can be scary going the first time, but if you come a few times, you’ll get to know them and it’ll come very naturally. Of course, if you try it and it doesn’t click for you, you don’t have to keep doing it.
