“Isn’t it amazing each and every day we all live in the company of strangers.  People that we interact with that we do not even know. Think about it for just a moment how each of us pays our taxes so that people we don’t even know might have health care, Medicare, Social Security or streets paid for, because we live in the company of strangers. People we don’t even know.”   Thomas Thibodeau, Professor of Servant Leadership

Only a tramp was Lazarus that day
When he lay down at the rich man’s gate
He begged for some crumbs from the rich man to eat
But they left him to die like a tramp on the street
 
He was some mother’s darlin’; some mother’s son
Once he was fair; once he was young
Some mother rocked him, her little darlin’ to sleep
But they left him to die like a tramp on the street
 
If Jesus would come and knock at your door
Would you let him come in; take from your store
Would you turn him away with nothing to eat
Leave him to die like a tramp on the street

Thank you for all that you do,
