LAYMAN LESSONS INC
November 9, 2010
Layman Lessons of Nashville has been a blessing to 1000s of homeless men and women over the 9 years they have operated in Nashville. I have volunteered each Saturday for 3 years to work with this ministry to serve the homeless. We provide them a wonderful hot meal, clothing and message of hope through the Gospel each Saturday.
I have had the men and women come to me after we are done and thank me for a wonderful meal and church service. I have counseled men who responded to the church message and watched them express concerns and hopes for the future. The message they give me usually revolves around wanting to re-unite with family; stop an addiction; or find a job. We pray together and then sit them down so we can serve them a hot meal.
It is important to understand that during the 3 hours they are with us we serve them, they stay seated, enjoy the music or mediate and we bring them water, coffee and their meal, they do not wait in line, we want to show them respect and appreciation for them being with us.

Volunteers to help each Saturday sometimes a challenge, but we find each Saturday just the right number show up to help, however, I would like to see more churches involved in this service.
