Let’s talk this over supper

Over the last few weeks I spent a lot of time at the First Baptist Church on Octavia and Market streets and befriended plenty of people who are making the neighbourhood a community. How do they do it? Well, every Wednesday evening, members of the church open their doors to the homeless people and serve them a home cooked meal. Their stories are unique and heartwarming because they don’t get anything in return and nor do they expect to. Their mission is to spread love over “all those who God has created.”

Below you’ll find some pictures that put a face on the Wednesday night dinners.

Formerly homeless himself, “Reggie” has now become an active member of the church and helps out with the Wednesday night meals. (He is a poet too and often recites his written poetry during the meals)
