Caring for human beings seems like the best use of my time, homeless or not.

Our Mandate

"Mandatum novum do vobis ut diligatis invicem sicut dilexi vos" ("A new commandment I give unto you, That you love one another; as I have loved you")

Why do we got to make it so difficult?

Today in the Christian calendar of holy week is called "Maundy Thursday" -- Maundy is from the Middle English -- think mandate.

Our job is to love each other. That's it. Not so tough, really. Good luck with it. Rick
