A Saturday night.
Downtown Orlando, across from Lake Eola.
Over 60 volunteers.
About 200 homeless folks.
Hot dinner. Snacks bags.
Toiletries. First aid kits.
Clothes. Blankets. Sleeping bags.
Love in action.
|Tables lined up with all the good stuff!|

|Side windows at St. George Greek Orthodox Church|
(Many church groups use the parking lot for feeding the homeless
We had to move up to an adjacent sidewalk
since the lot was needed for an event.)

This is my P52 / Sweet Shot Tuesday photo submission.
|Fountain at Lake Eola|
a former cocaine addict,
is now a believer in Jesus,
and feeds the homeless
several times a week in Orlando.
You can find him at
Would your church or organization
like to help out occasionally?
It takes a bunch to keep this going!
|My son-in-law Alex, Michael, Julia, and Allura|
(who has been a wonderful ministry mentor to Julia)
Sorry for the lighting problems on this photo!
|Folks are starting to line up to eat|
|In addition to a hot meal and dessert,|
we handed out snack bags.
|A few camellias from my backyard|
to grace the food table --
because Beauty is the handmaiden
of Justice and Mercy.

On the right, my dear and longtime friend Donna
with her daughter,
who was one of my co-op students a while back!
|Danny, a pastor,|
brought a Bible encouragement to the crowd
before the meal, and afterwards, prayed with the volunteers.
For a home.
