I really like the non-traditional pastor in this piece, and especially his handling of the "Thems" and the "Mes". Great story!

I really liked the story. Got a bit mixed up in the dialogue part, of who was speaking to whom - AND I was looking for the topic "pastor"...which I found in the end when you called him one. Loved the creativity of this entry. Nice job.

I loved this story! I could see both the homeless man and the contrastingly affluent narrator through the narrative's vivid descriptions. Both characters came alive for me--I felt as though I were there.

Beautiful message--I especially enjoyed the ending's unexpected twists of the homeless man (through the narrator's eyes) being a pastor...and of him having once himself been a "Them"!

Very good - I like this line - "I had worked hard to perfect the blend of warmth and trendiness." I have so been there, and then feel guilty when I see the cold homeless. Love your story of their pastor. God Bless.
