This is the beginning of a new feature called “Strong Stories” where Jeff Strong, one of the pastors at Anawim, tells a strong, inspiring, or sometimes funny story.
Jeff has had a number of different experiences in his life and he finds himself in really unique situations at times. Rather than talk about his stories, let me just share one:
“Boy today is my day to get blessed and to do some blessing.
Jeff later told me that the owner of the cafe, Tom (which is only appropriate) approached him the next week and said, “So I understand that you are inviting the homeless to hang out in my restaurant?”
Jeff, who had known Tom for many years, just shrugged and said, “Well, would you rather have me bring him in and feed him or to have him stay in the parking lot begging?” Tom also shrugged and walked away.
