A Homeless Baylor Grad

Somehow, I missed this story on Unfair Park until today. Benny Barret is a Baylor grad who was teaching science in a local high school before he burned out and took a break to do… well nothing. Sort of. He’s been living on the streets and in shelters, taking an iPhone that his parents gave him for Christmas and using it to record videos with fellow street dwellers. He has uncovered, in my opinion, a piece of how challenging it is to work to end homelessness. Some people like the freedom of the streets. For others, being homeless is just a symptom of other problems in their life.

I am thinking of trying to get a hold of him and invite him to the pub one night. What do you think?

Check out some of his other videos here.

Homeless Count and Census

The Table and Faith in the City Pub ministry are organizing some folks to join in with the City of Dallas’ annual Homeless Count and Census on January 26. If you are interested, check the flyer below for more information, and then email me if you are interested in joining us. You’ll need to bring warm clothes, a flashlight, and an open mind as we get a better picture on this challenge in our city.
