The Downtown Samaritans (see Day #520) participated in the Downtown Merchants Sidewalk Sale. Two of us took a two-hour shift handing out bottles of water and brochures about the services the downtown churches offer. It was a blessed time of meeting all sorts of people - those who appreciatively accepted a free bottle of water, those who were hesitant but willing, those who wanted NOTHING to do with it, and all those in-between. There were even those who gave hugs, those who were interested in finding ways to volunteer, and those who will hopefully one-day accept some of the services offered. All in all, it was a wonderful afternoon!!
