Item description for Got The Time?: A SEARCH FOR HOPE ADMIST HOMELESSNESS by Lori Gonzalez...
Overview Lori Gonzalez-author, homemaker and mother of three-took time out of her hectic schedule one evening to "dish up the gravy" at a Los Angeles area homeless shelter. What began as a simple act serving food to the homeless became a passion as Lori Gonzalez began to get involved in the lives of those who live on the edge of society, In the book the reader gets to meet many of the homeless people, hear their stories, and walk with them as they attempt to get on with their lives-either within the conventions of society or seemingly divorced from it entirely. As the reader will find, Got the Time? has a double meaning. It is a question that homeless people often ask, which seems ironic since all they have is time on their hands. For those who might feel a tugging at their hearts whenever they encounter the homeless, it is a simple plea. Will you take some time out of your busy scheduel to help? For churches, it is fulfilling one of God's greatest commands-to do for "the least of our brethren." Got the Time? is a book filled with inspirational, real life stories of those who are homeless and of those who help.
Publishers Description "A Journey into the Lives of the Homeless" The homeless. Those who dwell on the edge of society often invisible to the rest of us. Yet Jesus said in Matthew 25:35, "For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in." Enter a homemaker and mother of three who takes time out of her hectic schedule one evening to "dish up the gravy" at a Los Angeles area homeless shelter. Like so many others, she had never really given the homeless much thought. Then, between the first scoop of gravy and the last that night, her life changed. Instead of simply ladling gravy as she had been directed, she finds herself looking intently into each person's eyes; and she is gripped by a deeply felt belief that she is seeing each of these people through the eyes of God
