I met Chalk at 10:45 PM Friday night. We met waiting for the bus to the Poor People’s Rally. I twiddled my backpack strap anxiously; he tightened his confidently.
Chalk is a member of common cathedral, the street church in Boston, part of the Ecclesia Network. This church of people without homes or with unstable housing graciously invited me to join them for this trip. So, there I was at South Station, getting introductions and being reminded that we all want everyone to succeed on this trip, and praying for safe travel.

For my organized thoughts, see my book Five Loaves, Two Fish, Twelve Volunteers: Developing Relational Food Ministries. In this spot are thoughts that appear for a moment--about food programs, mission, church, building community, writing, and whatever else pops into my head.
