|30 May 2020 – DAY 59|
|TOTAL SERVED TO DATE||17,509|
This morning I did a podcast about UOS which centred around connection…so let’s hold that theme for a moment.
The other night Brian told me he’d spoken to one of the regulars down Trafalgar and he was showing his appreciation of the fact that we came out right after the lockdown and we’ve been there every single day. Not missing one beat. One of the best ways of rebuilding trust is through consistency. That is the spirit I’d love for us to hold…we just deliver. And of course out of trust grows friendship.
That applies not only to us and our homeless friends, but also to our teams. We’ve been on the road together long enough for that trust to have been built between us. It is true whether you normally volunteer in Waterloo, do the packing at Punjab, make 240 sandwiches daily or look after the teams in the control room.
Its a beautiful thing to observe…like when a flower has found a way to grow out of a slab of concrete. Personally I have no doubt this moment will go down as one of the brightest in my life.
Brian sent me this song tonight, making it his request for an UOS theme song. Be good fun to get your request. We can build an Under One Sky playlist. When the day comes when we will celebrate all our hard work and efforts connecting we’ll know what to play.
I am just one person in this but I have so much love, respect and gratitude to each one of you bright lights showing the way for the rest of society.
