This is probably going to be one of my all time favorite pictures. A man named Dick Weed is holding court with a group of young, middle class kids from places where no one is named “Dick Weed” or “Chubs” or “Black Mike” or “Country”.
Dick Weed is seemingly so different than these students. Almost from another universe (although he lives just 5 miles down the road from where they live). YET he and them are SO similar. The same desires. The same hopes. The same dreams.
What an incredible opportunity for these students. I truly hope they liked meeting Dick Weed. I love Dick Weed SO much.
These are students from Grace Church. They joined us this summer in doing their outreach program that normally happens in Philadelphia and Mexico. We were SO lucky to have them spend time with us this year.
