– Pastor Len Taylor, The Lord Hands and Hearts Ministries on the role of hope for the homeless at Solomon’s Porch
“There’s a group of the homeless that don’t go to the shelters…so at night they walk around with everything they own on their back. They might stop at a park bench or at a DART stop and rest a moment because they’re weary, but they can’t get rest because they always have to be on guard. Solomon’s Porch is a place they can let their guard down. … It’s a place where hope lives. ”
Pastor Len Taylor of The Lord’s Hands and Hearts Ministries joins Rashad and the team to talk about hope and homelessness. Pastor Len provides service at Solomon’s Porch on Saturday mornings as part of the ministries. Rashad and Pastor Len met for the first time while both were staying at Dallas homeless shelters. Pastor Len who was raised in by a preacher-father and a church-going mother, found himself homeless for a short period after his life spiraled out of control following his divorce. He provides a unique perspective and lively dialogue on the need for hope for those experiencing homelessness and extreme poverty in South Dallas and how respect, fellowship and places like Solomon’s Porch can help.
