Prove it: Day Three: I Lied

 

An exercise in homelessness.

Clarksville, TN – Kenny York, Founder and Director of Manna Café Ministries, will be spending the next two weeks as a homeless man in an effort to bring increased awareness and compassion for the homeless. He and the Manna Café team are increasing their efforts to launch a full-time transitional shelter in Clarksville, even though homelessness is “a silent epidemic” in this fast-growing community. This is part four of his adventure.

Well, to start with, I have a confession to get off my chest: I lied. The ground under my tent is not more comfortable than the floor of the bus I slept on the first night. Actually, I didn’t believe it was possible, but I think it’s harder. Even so, I did sleep better. By the end of this two weeks, I’ll probably be able to sleep standing up. «Read the rest of this article»

Prove it: Day Two: Madison Street and Sweet Tea

 

An exercise in homelessness.

Clarksville, TN – Kenny York, Founder and Director of Manna Café Ministries, will be spending the next two weeks as a homeless man in an effort to bring increased awareness and compassion for the homeless. He and the Manna Café team are increasing their efforts to launch a full-time transitional shelter in Clarksville, even though homelessness is “a silent epidemic” in this fast-growing community. This is part three of his adventure.

Well, the first night out didn’t go as expected, but I survived. I got my new camp set up this morning. This one should go a little better—it’s a lot more hidden than the last one. It’s a little further from downtown than I wanted, but since it’s better hidden, it’s a good trade-off. For those who are wondering where I slept last night (being that I was evicted from my first camp), well, I did what a lot of homeless people do: I slipped inside a fence, crawled into the back of a vehicle, went to sleep, and slipped out again before anyone got there the next morning. This vehicle just happened to be the Love Bus at the Manna House. (I didn’t want to get arrested my first night out for trespassing or breaking and entering.)

Trust me, sleeping on the ground in a tent will be way more comfortable than on the floor of a bus.

My first night’s “camp.”

My first night’s “camp.”
