Do you really think giving, giving, giving will teach these homeless, ex-cons, hookers, pimps and drug dealers to make it on their own some day? NO, they just keep demaining more and more free to them. Why don't you teach them how to be a contributing memeber of society or have them trade some service they have rather than give it all away? We need so much work around SLU due to these who want a free ride. Cannot they do something to help us back for dealing with all the misery they put on us? - rather than contunie using and I do mean using the church for a free ride. Don't you see you are being taken advantage of??? Open your eyes good people of the lord. Yes, be good, be good, but at some point, you need to really help these people and giving them all this, isn't helping them, it's only hurting them in the longrun, by making them dependent on someone other than themselves. They would feel so much better about themselves if they earned something. We in SLU, are tired of our nice neighborhood being filling up with their trash, feces, sleeping bags, bottle, needles etc. The break in's, the tagging, etc etc etc......They only reason they are here is due to your church and that Center. Community Center??? give me a break!! The actual community is scared near it !!!! Why don''t you think about being a good neighborh for once!
