    July 8, 2018– 14th Sunday in Ordinary

    Last week I went down to the cities to visit my son, Steven. We bought tickets

    to the Dakota Jazz Club. I was so proud of my “small town” son who whisked us

    in and out of traffic and got us safely into downtown Mpls. My heart was happy to

    see him confidently locate a parking garage on 10th Ave. just down the street from

    the Dakota.

    We arrived about a half hour before the box office opened so we had some time to

    walk along Nicollet Ave. There was a Starbucks on the corner of 10th and Nicol-

    let, so we purchased a coffee, sat down at one of the tables on the sidewalk and

    “people watched”.

    I soon noticed a man slumped over in a wheel chair sitting right on the corner

    of 10th and Nicollet. He wasn’t moving and I got a little worried about him. He

    was dangerously close to the street and I was nervous that he might roll right out

    into traffic. I asked my son if we should do something for this poor man, he said

    that the man was probably homeless and that we should leave him be. Others were

    concerned as well, as the crowds walked by they would stop and look at him to see

    if there was anything they could do.

    There was a group of young girls sitting at the table next to us and I could hear

    them talking, they were just as concerned as us. Just as we were about to get up

    and go for help, several police officers came along and one of them went to the

    man, touched his shoulder (and to my joy he woke up! Phew he was alive!) They

    asked the man if he needed help and told him that several people were worried

    about him. One officer went into the Starbucks and brought him a glass of water.

    The officers left and I noticed several people stopping to give the man money. I

    thought, Praise the Lord, now this dear man will get food and shelter.

    It was time for the box office to open, my son and I got up from our table and

    headed to the Jazz Club, as we walked by the man in the wheelchair, I heard him

    talking to a passerby, he was handing the man some of his gifted money and ask-

    ing him to go buy him a “bottle”! I was irate! This man was surrounded by people

    who were just waiting to help him, he had resources all around him to make his

    life better. But in the end, what did he want? Alcohol. A band aid for his prob-

    lems. An escape. He didn’t want a solution, he didn’t want a way to make his life

    better, he was holding on to his suffering with both hands shut tight.

    This man in the wheelchair reminded me of some Christians I know, who hang

    on to their pain, fear, despair, loneliness, depression, with both hands clenched as

    tight as they can. When all around them is the love of Jesus Christ, just waiting to

    take all the suffering away! Jesus is our courage and our strength. He is our pur-

    pose our friend and companion. Open your arms and run to Him today!
