The Frank Turner Show
When I left there was about a 3 block walk to my car. Along the way I saw a group of homeless guys hanging out under an awning. I noticed one of the guys there was a man who wasn't allowed to come into the Mission due to violence issues and a refusal to get a psychological evaluation. We had met and so I sat down to see how the guy was doing. He told me things were going okay. That he had began going to a Bible Study and was learning about Jesus more and more. We talked about some old testament Bible stories and shared a couple of doughnuts from VooDoo. I let him know if he needed anything just swing by and see me.
As I got into the car I was smiling. It is amazing to me how a guy who has success like Frank Turner seems to drift away from God in his pursuit. While my friend on the street seems to grow closer to him even though he has nothing. In Frank's song you could feel the desperation that there was nothing really worth living for other than stuff of today. But talking to the homeless guy, he found his hope in the future to come. And he trusted Christ to take him from day to day.
Really enjoyed Frank's music, but I loved the heart of a homeless man.
