Are The Homeless Movin’ On Up?

As the number of guests who attend the shared meals for the homeless and those in need continues to grow in Bucks County, PA, the food to feed them is stretched. Sometimes, the gracious hosts are unable to offer seconds. 

Actually, this is a good thing, as some of the guests have been overeating and continue to get fatter.  A few years ago, a homeless friend (now no longer homeless) told me he doesn’t want to be made too comfortable in his homeless situation because it will not give him incentive to move forward, out of being homeless (which he did).  This is analogous to people continually leaving bread for birds, who then can’t fly south for the winter. 

Some people who go to the meals have become quite rotund, which is a polite word for “fat.” Some of them are proud of their big bellies.  

By indulging the homeless in meals that have, to some, become a Roman banquet, the meals provide more than subsistence. Gorging yourself does not give you much motivation to leave the nest. 

Parks in Bucks County have posted rules not to feed the waterfowl, a tradition almost as dumb as smoking. Migrating waterfowl, instead of continuing on their journey south, may stop in route where they can get welfare. Here they grow so fat that they can’t fly south! They have trouble even getting off the ground!

Like the waterfowl, needy people need to stick to basics, and continue their journey, and not get stuck in a rut, like the characters in John Bunyan’s The Pilgrim’s Progress. In the story, the characters, who were just supposed to take a nap on their way to the Celestial City, lingered, and had to suffer the consequences. God, of course, guided them along The King’s Highway, home.

We are all homeless, in a sense. For the Christian, heaven is home. We are just sojourners on this earth and we shouldn’t get too caught up in the things of this world. Easter is a reminder that Jesus rose from the grave to overcome death to save us from our sins and to follow his ways in life to advance His kingdom. God restores us to the way he created us. 

Easter is not about the bunny; it’s about the lamb! 

I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” -John 16:33 

Who the homeless really are and their challenges is the subject of my recently published book: “There Are Homeless in Bucks County; A Journey With The Homeless”, which focuses on the homeless in lower Bucks County, based on first-hand experience:  https://www.amazon.com/dp/172865209X/ref=cm_sw_r_fa_dp_U_.iX9BbZXM6842?fbclid=IwAR14Y8jAxc462oqzltCCdZGq4BCLQg-HW8VEoAdpkGjog9Q78PqGh6zTTIA 

A Day in The Life of The Homeless

When his mother was being evicted, the son was in jail, charged with reckless driving and driving without a license, which resulted in homelessness, reports an article on philly.com, about the problems of people living in the woods in Croydon.  https://www.philly.com/philly/news/pennsylvania/homeless-shelter-bucks-county-pennsylvania-camps-20181007.html 

Not getting along at a family friend’s place was a reason the mother ended up in the woods. She couldn’t get into the temporary shelter in Levittown.  

People become homeless for various reasons. Drug, alcohol, cigarette, and other addictions is one reason. Some people lose their jobs, sometimes through no fault of their own. 

Public housing is tough to get into. It often takes years to get a place through the government. And the availability and price of private housing is another obstacle to finding a place in Bucks County. Irresponsible roommates, deadbeats is yet another. Because of the excessive red tape from government regulations that have strangled society since the days Levittown, PA was built, people must often go through timely and expensive hoops to get a place.      

To overcome obstacles the homeless have to hurdle, the homeless need to know first that they matter and that people have faith that they can move forward.  The mainstream mantra, which by the way voted for Shrillery Clinton, subtly views the homeless as being in a caste system, where they are stuck in their situation. A few years ago, I emailed a Bucks County commissioner to propose an initiative to dedicate county land to build a homeless village, where there are rules, supervision, management – where the homeless help build and manage the community the way any other place would be run – like Dignity Village in Oregon.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dignity_Village 

To help people better understand the homeless and to shed light on the homeless, focusing on Bucks County, PA, I published a book “There Are Homeless in Bucks County; A Journey With The Homeless,” based on my interaction with the local homeless and on research: 

https://www.amazon.com/dp/172865209X/ref=cm_sw_r_fa_dp_U_.iX9BbZXM6842?fbclid=IwAR14Y8jAxc462oqzltCCdZGq4BCLQg-HW8VEoAdpkGjog9Q78PqGh6zTTIA 

Homeless Population Increasing in Bucks County?

Homeless people are to be seen and not heard.  I mean the saying is “children are to be seen and not heard.”  Actually, according to a source in the October 7, 2018 edition of the Philadelphia Inquirer, the homeless population in Bucks County, PA is shrinking, but many are not seen. The question arises about the official homeless count. Do the homeless count? Evidently, they don’t, as many out there are MIA! 

Another source in the article said that the homeless population in Bucks is growing. “I see a lot of new faces”, the source said.  

I’ve been hanging out with the homeless in Bucks County and going to the shared meals, off and on, since early spring, 2014. Lately, I’ve been seeing a lot of new faces as well as some of the old. The homeless population in Bucks is growing! Churches that host the shared meals have been just keeping up with all the guests that attend the meals. Although the meals are often packed, the churches have been able to provide food for their guests, for which I am grateful and I give them credit. 

The churches also offer spiritual food for their guests. And guests meet friends at the meal and offer one another comfort and spiritual food, as iron sharpens iron. 

There are many reasons people become homeless. One is the excessive regulations – the hoops those seeking an apartment or a house need to go through. This is a symptom of progressive policies, which started with President FDR, who, along with President Herbert Hoover, fostered massive homelessness with their progressive, big government, tax and spend socialist policies.  As the late, great radio talk show host Tom Marr said, “where there is liberal rule, there is more crime and poverty.” 

Today, in Pennsylvania, tax and spend progressives hurt the economy, and increase homelessness. After bamboozling the public to vote him into office, Pennsylvania Governor “Big Bad” Tom Wolf banned new drilling for natural gas, which is clean, on state land, allegedly to protect the environment. In reality, it was just an initiative to kowtow to the pseudo environmentalists’ special interests. This hurts industry, jobs but also robs the state of royalties that would go into state coffers. 

Instead of getting state funds through land use leases, Big Bad is raising taxes on gasoline, which hurts the overall economy and individual economies, as people have to pay more for gas!  In fact, as a headline on LevittownNow.com reads: PA Ranks The Highest For State Imposed Gas Taxes.

How, liberal, progressive policies exacerbate homelessness is one subject I get into in my recently published book: “There Are Homeless in Bucks County; A Journey with The Homeless.”   

https://www.amazon.com/dp/172865209X/ref=cm_sw_r_fa_dp_U_.iX9BbZXM6842?fbclid=IwAR14Y8jAxc462oqzltCCdZGq4BCLQg-HW8VEoAdpkGjog9Q78PqGh6zTTIA 

No Excuse For Selfishness!

One of the guests, known as Piglet, at the meals for the homeless and needy Tuesday night in Bucks County, PA took up three chairs – one for her and two for her stuff. It was crowded, as is the case with the growing homeless population in Bucks, and seating was tight. When a woman confronted Piglet about taking up extra spaces, she explained she needed to because she is 59 years old.  “I am 89 years old,” the woman retorted, and told her to move her baggage off the two chairs. 

Piglet is one of a few rogue guests who frequent to homeless/needy meals who have been competing for the Noble Savage of 2019 award. These rogues, by the way, are not homeless. They have been hogging space and purloining items that the homeless need more than they do. One thing Piglet is famous for is jumping in line, making sure she is first in line, telling people she has to catch a bus (as though nobody else has places they have to go).   

Another competitor for the Noble Savage award is Morticia Addams, who is famous for pulling tricks to abscond with great amounts of items such as sodas. On Tuesday, when I went to get sodas for myself and folks at my table early in the meal, none were left!  Morticia’s husband Gomer is said to be her accomplice. At Tuesday’s meal, one of the host told her to limit what she took of certain items. Gomer demanded the host apologize to his wife! Really? The perpetrator owes the homeless and other folks who attend the meals an apology! Morticia adams origional.jpg

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Morticia_adams_origional.jpg

One competitor for the Noble Savage award, who came under serious competition from other savages was said to really go over the top late in the week prior to Tuesday’s meal. The meal runs from 6 p.m. until 7 p.m.   Birdman arrived at the meal at 6:55. One soda was left. But he demanded the host bring him another soda. To top that, he demanded the host make a fresh pot of coffee, five minutes before the meal was over!   

The majority of people who frequent the meals act civilized.  It’s some of the non-homeless but needy that have been acting selfishly, rudely, at the meals, callous in regards to the needs of others.  In contrast, on one occasion recently, one guest gave some cereal the host gave her and her boyfriend to someone with children, who needed the food more than they did. This is how we should treat others! We should practice acts of kindness and selflessness! 

People who attend the meals, who are in similar circumstances, don’t act the same. Your circumstances don’t define who you are. I address this in regards to the homeless in my book: 

https://www.amazon.com/dp/172865209X/ref=cm_sw_r_fa_dp_U_.iX9BbZXM6842?fbclid=IwAR14Y8jAxc462oqzltCCdZGq4BCLQg-HW8VEoAdpkGjog9Q78PqGh6zTTIA 

Philippians 2:2-8 2then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind. 3Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, 4not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others. 5In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: 6Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; 7rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. 8And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death- even death on a cross! 

Psyched About Drug Abuse

Within the war on drug abuse there is a war about how to fight the war. On one side drug abuse is considered a disease, something one just catches and not a moral failing, a character flaw. On the other side drug abuse is considered a choice, a moral failing, a character flaw, a result of selfishness and idolatry. 

The world view of the former is that drug abuse is not the user’s fault and that the problem is treated the way you would treat the flu – with medicine. Or with Psychobabble, which is human centric.  

The Greek root of psychology is psyche, which means “soul”.    So, the term “psychology” is essentially Christian, Biblical. The problem in our culture is the influence of Darwin with the origin of species – that we are just a higher form of animal and are driven by instincts, and therefore cannot make moral decisions.  The lack of Biblical absolutes is another problem with the disease model world view of drug abuse. This moral failing is often called “substance abuse disorder.”  In a word, the term “psychology” has been bastardized by secular psychology.  

https://www.christiancourier.com/articles/469-modern-psychology-and-the-bible?fbclid=IwAR2PLdGZyjt65kBVwOKugEbI4U3OT35DFXN9LyJMcL_tzSs00CtdQlrAiyg 

A relatively recent trend in psychology is cognitive behavioral therapy. It’s basically a model, where the client experiments with ideas he/she has.  In a given situation, thoughts are acted out, outcomes are examined, and making a new plan, Stan is considered.  There are no absolutes, no a priori principles, which are found in the Bible. 

Cognitive behavioral therapy is one tool used by the mental health hustlers at the Penndel Mental Health Center in Bucks County, PA.  I’m told that the center doesn’t have enough counselors to satisfy the demand of “clients.”  A program in Bucks County, where recruiters shanghai homeless people into mental health treatment, with the guise that homeless people need their services, before even talking to them, was defunded. Nevertheless, the homeless bounty flooded the market.   

What the homeless (and those who are not homeless) need is counsel from pastors and other Christians. This past Saturday at a homeless meal someone noticed that someone I’ve been getting close to needed to talk with someone, as did I.  This Christian host called the pastor in. We talked and we prayed together.  Later that day the immediate problem was resolved, with some food for thought (the hosts feed the body and the soul at the meals.) 

In my recently published book on homelessness, which focuses on Bucks County, I illustrate how the faith community helps the homeless – better than does the worldly “mental health” programs. People should have a choice about their source of help. The best help comes from God and His ambassadors, as we look up unto the hills, from whence comes our help! 

https://www.amazon.com/dp/172865209X/ref=cm_sw_r_fa_dp_U_.iX9BbZXM6842?fbclid=IwAR14Y8jAxc462oqzltCCdZGq4BCLQg-HW8VEoAdpkGjog9Q78PqGh6zTTIA 

You Have to Have at Least One Vice?

A mental health charlatan from Penndel Mental Health Center in Bucks County brought gobs of junk food to her grossly overweight client who was staying in a nursing home. Because, the client told me, the home put her on a healthy diet, she went from 300 pounds to 275 pounds.  

But then along came the mental health hack, who cavalierly remarked that her client doesn’t eat her meals because she pigs out on junk food and added “you have to have at least one vice.”  According to Wikipedia.com, “Vice is a practice, behavior, or habit generally considered immoral, sinful, criminal, rude, taboo, depraved, or degrading in the associated society. In more minor usage, vice can refer to a fault, a negative character trait, a defect, an infirmity, or a bad or unhealthy habit. Vices are usually associated with a transgression in a person’s character or temperament rather than their morality. Synonyms for vice include fault, sin, depravity, iniquity, wickedness, and corruption.” 

So we have to have a least one vice?  Really? 

Gluttony is a form of addiction, a besetting sin. It harms the person and others around you. Instead of helping others overcome bad habits, vices, the hack is not only not helping the person, but enabling bad behavior, encouraging, exacerbating the excesses, the addiction. 

This is the case with the mainstream mantra parroted by politicians and the rest of all the king’s men, who don’t have a clue on how to put broken people back together again.  Calling drug addiction “substance abuse disorder” is counterproductive.   

As is the case of housing, the free market helps. People should have a choice to see for themselves what works best. One organization I see as very helpful is Conquering Life Prison And Recovery Ministries (CLPRM) http://www.clprm.org/ 

To address the solution to the opioid crisis, I’ve been working on a book that argues that the faith community is the key to resolving the problem, which ultimately is a spiritual epidemic.  

Driving past the Levittown-Fairless Hills rescue squad on New Falls Road in Levittown, PA recently, I noticed the latest drug overdose statistics:   Image may contain: outdoor

“Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land.” -2 Chronicles 7:14 

I Can Change The World?

And I can change the world 

 I will be the sunlight in your universe 

 You would think my love was really something good 

 Baby if I could change the world”  -Eric Clapton Change The World 

As humans, we cannot, on our own, change the world. Late summer, after God took someone close to me home as a result of past drug abuse, I decided to join a cause to fight the drug abuse epidemic. Since then, I’ve tried to help people who are trapped by the voluntary slavery of drug addiction. I talked with them, but they didn’t follow through with the help I offered.   

People have told me “Jeff, you can’t change the world.”  That’s true. I get bummed out when I can’t help people change their destructive behavior.  I wish I could stop the insanity, which is reflected in the words of beat poet Allen Ginsberg in the beginning of Howl: “I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness, starving hysterical naked, dragging themselves through the negro streets at dawn looking for an angry fix, angelheaded hipsters burning for the ancient heavenly connection to the starry dynamo in the machinery of night,…”    

With the addicts I’ve interacted with, I was successful in that I did what I could to rightly minister to them. Anything else is God’s role, not mine.  One thing I learned in a 12 Steps program is that one cannot fix people. Life doesn’t work that way. 

Today as I continued to go through The Life Recovery Devotional, I was reminded, admonished that I cannot change the world. Ultimately, that’s God’s job. Christians are just an instrument of God, his ambassadors. The devotional is on Step One: “We admitted that we were powerless over our dependencies and that our lives had become unmanageable.”    

Although we are not responsible for results, we must reach out and serve others, including drug addicts. I agree with Os Guiness, who said that Christian faith should not be “privately engaging but socially irrelevant.” This is why faith-based groups, such as Conquering Life Prison and Recovery Ministries (CLPRM) do what they do.  http://www.clprm.org/ 

The Life Recovery Bible, devotional and workbook doesn’t just address drug and alcohol problems. It also helps people overcome compulsive behaviors, other hurts, bad habits and hang ups, the root of which is sin. The Bible has a solution for any human problem that is not physiological.  

The much publicized opioid crisis is ultimately a spiritual epidemic, and the answer is found with God and His ambassadors. 

“15 Whatever is has already been, 

    and what will be has been before; 

    and God will call the past to account.

16 And I saw something else under the sun: 

In the place of judgment—wickedness was there,
    in the place of justice—wickedness was there. 

17 I said to myself, 

“God will bring into judgment
    both the righteous and the wicked,
for there will be a time for every activity,
    a time to judge every deed.” 

18 I also said to myself, “As for humans, God tests them so that they may see that they are like the animals. 19 Surely the fate of human beings is like that of the animals; the same fate awaits them both: As one dies, so dies the other. All have the same breath[b]; humans have no advantage over animals. Everything is meaningless. 20 All go to the same place; all come from dust, and to dust all return. 21 Who knows if the human spirit rises upward and if the spirit of the animal goes down into the earth?” 

22 So I saw that there is nothing better for a person than to enjoy their work, because that is their lot. For who can bring them to see what will happen after them? 

Oppression, Toil, Friendlessness 

4 Again I looked and saw all the oppression that was taking place under the sun: 

I saw the tears of the oppressed—
    and they have no comforter;
power was on the side of their oppressors—
    and they have no comforter.
2 And I declared that the dead,
    who had already died,
are happier than the living,
    who are still alive.
3 But better than both
    is the one who has never been born,
who has not seen the evil
    that is done under the sun.” Ecclesiastes 3:15 – 4:3 

Talk Is Cheap!

“Loving Jesus and Serving The World”, reads a logo on The Levittown Church Of God van. Although we who come to the free shared homeless and needy meals appreciate being fed, some of us expressed outrage with the attitude of the host, namely the pastor, at the meal last night. 

We he opened, he bragged that the church itself provided the meal.  “So when you give to the poor, do not sound a trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, so that they may be honored by men Truly I say to you, they have their reward in full.” Matthew 6:2. 

“Let another praise you, and not your own mouth; A stranger, and not your own lips.” Proverbs 27:2 

The host started taking up table cloths, chairs, and even tables not much past 6:30 p.m., as people were still eating. The meal is scheduled to run from 6 p.m. until 7 p.m. Guests were not let in until 6:05. One of the guests asked if the meal was supposed to end at 6:30 p.m.   “Don’t you see, everyone is leaving”, the pastor snapped.  Shortly thereafter, as I sat, wiping my mouth with a napkin, the pastor, standing opposite me said something like “hope you had a good meal; we’re breaking it down…”.  As I finished wiping my mouth, he flipped the table, abruptly folding it up, almost dropping it on my lap!   

As we moseyed towards the door, some of the hosts subtly pushed us out, as if we were cattle!  Movin’ movin’ movin’. Keep them doggies movin’. Keep them doggies movin’, rawhide…  Move ‘em out! 

Except for graciously and generously offering the guests food, the hosts did not interact with their guests as they have in the past.  In the past, the pastor and other hosts have reached out to others. On one occasion long ago I talked with the pastor about a problem, which was later resolved. 

Christians should reflect Jesus. People are attracted to God through the way they treat others, by their love. “We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God.”  2 Corinthians 5:20  

There always has and always will be those who, in the name of Christ, do not rightly reflect Him.  

Some of the churches that host the meals reach out to their guests to develop relationships and minister to them. Many of the hosts and their guests know one another on a first name basis.  These churches practice the philosophy that man does not live by bread alone, and offer guests spiritual as well as physical food. They are there for their friends who visit the meals, as are the guests who help each other. 

In “There Are Homeless in Bucks County; A Journey With The Homeless”, I elaborate on the value of the  shared meals as well as other aspects of homelessness in Bucks County, based on personal experience with the homeless here: 

https://www.amazon.com/dp/172865209X/ref=cm_sw_r_fa_dp_U_.iX9BbZXM6842?fbclid=IwAR14Y8jAxc462oqzltCCdZGq4BCLQg-HW8VEoAdpkGjog9Q78PqGh6zTTIA 

Giving Hope To The Hopeless

To help pull people out of the slough of despair, the Christian community has been reaching out to those trapped in the voluntary slavery of addiction. A church in what law enforcement calls “ground zero” for opioid addiction – the Kensington section of Philadelphia, is helping to rescue addicts. Somewhat like Jonah in the Bible ministering to the wicked people in Nineveh. http://levittownnow.com/2019/02/20/congressman-fitzpatrick-chair-of-national-heroin-task-force-visits-ground-zero/ 

At the chapel in Kensington, broken people are given an opportunity to be redeemed and become productive members of society. On their way to redemption, they can become an intern, a good step along their journey to become whole. 

The chapel trains and brings missionaries into Kensington to do God’s work.   

At a Kensington park is a display that fosters hope to those caught in the besetting sin of drug addiction. 

Government officials came to Kensington to check out the scene.  I think that they and their constituents are at least tacitly starting to realize that the faith community is the key to resolving the drug abuse epidemic.  

In neighboring Bucks County, from which many of the customers come to Kensington to shop for drugs, organizations such as Conquering Life Prison and Recovery Ministries (CLPRM), a faith-based outfit, has been ministering to the lost in the greater Philadelphia area since 2005.  It started as a prison ministry in 2004. CLPRM serves as a network for other resources.  In the greater Philadelphia area, there are meetings to help people with addictions practically every day of the week. http://www.clprm.org/ 

I got involved in CLPRM after someone very close to me passed on July 4, 2018.  Bible based programs and Christian influence gave her an opportunity to get clean, and she did after I was with her for two months. But on the 4th of July, after 30 years of drug abuse, a time bomb went off and God took her home. I saw the dark world of drugs through her eyes and now want to help bring addicts into the light.  

I’m finishing up a book about how the faith community helps rescue addicts, to be published sometime in the future. My late companion is the particular in the book, just as the Joad family is in John Steinbeck’s The Grapes of Wrath.  My prayer is that people will realize that Jesus and the Bible is the answer! 

A Word About All Birds

The quintessential Noble Savage, who for a couple long years has been savaging the homeless meals in Bucks County, PA, did not fly north to Doylestown from lower Bucks County as we thought. This comes after he announced his flight north at a homeless meal, during which many of us clapped in applause and gave him a standing ovation. He’s commonly referred to as “Birdman”.  

He even has a theme song, which some of us thought should be played on a big screen at the meal as he makes his entrance:  https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=The+Word+is+the+bird+trashmen+video&view=detail&mid=62E64BD08A680113988862E64BD08A6801139888&FORM=VIRE 

One theory as to why Birdman did not fly north is that he ate too much food from the homeless meals and couldn’t get off the ground to fly. I don’t buy this theory. Birdman is quite skinny, although he takes a large plunder of food home after the meals. Maybe he has an imaginary army of birds he’s feeding. Maybe Alfred Hitchcock’s birds.  I don’t know.  

Maybe Birdman stayed in lower Bucks County to compete for the award for Noble Savage of The Year. There are a few individuals who attend the meals who have been giving Birdman some stiff competition, such as Piglet and Morticia Addams. These competitors are certainly lesser examples of The Noble Savage, but their modus operandi is different. Piglet hustles her way to make sure she is first in line when there is a line, by hook or crook. Last night, like a bulldozer, she crashed through a woman’s walker that was sticking out between the rows of tables, not blocking people walking by but she did not leave enough room for Piglet’s cart she pulled as she worked her way back to find a table. Morticia collects different food and other items and sneaks them off, one by one, from the meal.  

I think it’s time for a woman to get the award for Noble Savage. The Bucks liberal establishment should intervene, and in fairness, pick a female winner, whether she earned it or not.  

The Noble Savage has not just appeared at the homeless meals. Some can be found at the public libraries in lower Bucks County. A little while ago in the library I’m writing from a guy using one of the library computers blasted “music” that spewed out of his earphones. He rocked back and forth and gyrated, banged on the table and himself and at one point started spewing out the gibberish he evidently was listening to. Finally, a librarian told him it was too loud and asked him to turn it down.  

This guy wasn’t the only savage at the library today. Kids were running around like savages and screaming, definitely not disciplined by parents or guardians. That was tolerated by library staff. Maybe the library system will hold a Noble Savage contest. 

We are in a cultural war. My side of the war has been making headway. We’re recovering after having become an Obama Nation. President Trump fired some direct hits in his State of The Union speech, echoing the hearts and minds of the people who want to return to our Christian and constitutional heritage. 

These examples of The Noble Savage in lower Bucks County reflect the cultural war:
