Meet my new friend Nick. Nick is a homeless man who is hanging out in Childress today. Nick is in day 104 of a trek where he is walking (no rides) from Florida to California. He told me he was doing all this so he can learn to put more of his faith in God […]

Meet My New Friend Mark

This is my new friend Mark. He came through Childress hitchhiking his way towards New Mexico. My friend Glenna spotted him in town and asked if I’d check on him. I found him on the edge of town looking for a ride. I picked him up and asked if he’d like some lunch. I found […]

I Bought Groceries for Jesus Today

Yes, I bought Jesus groceries today. Crazy isn’t it … and he only wanted $26 worth of groceries. I did notice that he’s a big fan of cheap, college-kid type food.

My Friend Willie

The first time I met Willie (name changed) was when he stopped by the church needing $5 for some gas money. He told me he was down on his luck and if he could get a little gas, he could get some work. I didn’t have a 5 dollar bill so I gave him a […]

Will You be a Sheep or Goat?

Some buddies and I loaded up a while back and drove to Dallas to hear Shane Claiborne speak. I remember him asking a question that just rocked my “religious” world. He asked, “How can you and I worship a homeless man on Sunday and ignore one on Monday?” The tough answer is … we shouldn’t. […]

Does this story say anything about what we are becoming … Hugo Alfredo Tale-Yax, a Guatemalan immigrant, was the kind of person people in New York ignored. He was dirty and homeless, but it didn’t mean Tale-Yax wasn’t human. It seems, actually, he was a pretty good guy. When a woman was attacked by a […]

I picked him up the other day on a hot sunny afternoon on the outskirts of Childress. I don’t know how long he’d been standing on the side of the road looking for a ride out of town, but I offered him something to drink and he took me up on my offer. He looked […]

Having a major highway come right through the middle of Childress often brings with it homeless people looking for help. I always try to help them with a room for the night, a meal or just some conversation. But recently I was particularly blessed when a man passing through town asked for a place to […]

Tony Campolo is one of my favorite storytellers. He has the amazing ability to touch your heart with stories that challenge you. He tells the story “Party for a Prostitute” and not to long ago he told about a homeless man he met on the streets of Philadelphia. The story goes like this: One day […]

Rediscovering Real Church

I was recently reminded by my children that we have forgotten what “real church” is. While traveling on a trip they kept pointing out all the “church buildings.” “Wow, dad look at the size of that church building,” was their constant comment. We put so much emphasis on church buildings that we have forgotten what […]

  • He was pretty tough to listen to as well.
  • As crazy as it might sound, Chris Collinsworth just might be worse to listen to than the song Christmas Shoes.
  • Please remember that some Christmas music is incredibly offensive to people with grandmothers who actually were run over by reindeer.
  • Unfortunately, not a great night for "bobcats." :)
  • Chin up Childress Bobcats. We couldn't be prouder. Great fight tonight.
