I have hope for the future. I know that the panhandling signs in this month’s Changing Lives do not instill hope. Instead, they are a painful reminder that there is a crisis on our streets, a crisis of homelessness.
Why, then, do I have hope? Because we continue to see lives changed in the name of Christ at Denver Rescue Mission. One of our program participants is featured in this edition. His story is about coming to us after panhandling on the streets, finding a new life full of purpose and reason to hope.
