Homeless Update ’08

Got to buy dinner for a homeless dude in old city Philly last night. To read about other homeless adventures, click here. Items selected included

  • a pound of raw bacon
  • bread
  • 1/2 pound cheddar cheese
  • bottled water

I refrained from giving him the following:

  • fermented beverages
  • cash

So this guy was I think more confused than anything else. I think all this Jesus Camp blogging has made me feel like a hypocrite unconsciously – I told the dude “Jesus loves you” and all I could think about was the Jesus Camp thing, and I totally got slimed. Plus, the dude obviously wanted a beer, I suppose he would have appreciated the sentiment more had I got him one… we don’t act on our feelings, right?
