One of God's Tiniest Foot Soldiers
Occasionally I am asked why I do this every day. Aside from the obvious - being able to hone my photography skills, I have found unexpected rewards. As I am out scouting interesting subjects to photograph, I run into some really wonderful people making a difference in my community.
Yesterday I took a spin downtown. As I cruised past Linn Park in the heart of the city, I noticed people sitting quietly all over the park. I decided to investigate. In the pavilion I found a group of 2o or so men, women and children busily setting up for lunch. They weren't getting ready for a family picnic or reunion - they were offering a delicious hot lunch ( we're talking fried chicken here) to some of our city's homeless. Their shirts said it all: "God's Foot Soldiers" on the back, and on the front "Family and Friends Homeless Ministry". They told me that this is a monthly commitment. Good people doing good work - a blessing.
