Last Saturday was the first time I've participated in Don't Walk By, but I had heard from friends that I didn't need to bring anything except extra layers and a willingness to speak to strangers.
As a total extrovert, I wasn't nervous about approaching someone on the street- especially since we had excellent help and services to offer as provided by the hospitality team back at the base church- but committing to walk and engage with the homeless made me think about the future: how would stopping this time, instead of walking by, change the way I commute everyday? Could I go back to putting on blinders to the need in my own neighborhood?
