under a poor coat

Yesterday, I had the privilege of spending several hours volunteering at Our Daily Bread here in Lynchburg. The Lynchburg Morning Rotary Club, where I am a member, volunteers at Our Daily Bread once a quarter.

Our Daily Bread has been serving a daily hot noon meal to the hungry for over 30 years. In fact, my first organization, the Society of Saint Andrew played a small role in helping it get started.

Getting an opportunity to serve the poor is always a privilege for me, and yesterday was no exception. Every one of the 125 or so folks that came to Our Daily Bread yesterday came with a history.

Every one of them came with a story. And every one of them came with a hunger for more than the delicious lunch they were served.

There were definitely rich hearts under some poor clothes yesterday. And every one of those rich hearts reminded me that Jesus is a master of disguise.
