We can learn much from our peers. I just read an article by Taj Hall, who works with homeless individuals in Canada, about asking the question, “How’s it going?

Ms. Hall does not ask this question unless she is prepared to listen to the answer. How many of us have walked by someone and asked, “Hey, how’s it going?” without even stopping to hear the answer? For homeless individuals, they usually don’t even get that much from people passing them by.

The homeless spend much of their lives feeling invisible, forgotten and utterly without value. What a tremendous blessing a genuine, unhurried conversation can be for these marginalized individuals! Something so easy and so simple can make a world of difference.

If you are able to, why not come in and listen to our guests? Their stories, real or not, are worth your time. It costs nothing to give back in this simple but important way.
