THOUGHTS ON “REACH”

December 19, 2013 | By | No Comments

REACH (from the Dry Bones Mission)
We are freely extended beyond our familiar boundaries in order to form relationships that reveal the God-given unsurpassable worth of all involved. We hope to create intersections where people from different walks of life cross paths who would not normally meet; here, everyone belongs.

On outreach today, I saw some of my friends sitting on the sidewalk and listening to a guitarist perform beside them. The scene was very Denver-as-usual.   Read More

More Than Meets The Eye – Video and Questions

November 21, 2013 | By | No Comments

We recently hosted a celebration and fundraising event in downtown Denver. Many of you attended and were able to see and meet Guyia, Mike, and Danny. For those of you who missed it, we invite you to watch this video.

Guyia, Mike, and Danny boldly share the narratives they once lived from before believing in and discovering a new one. It is evident that our core narrative shapes so many aspects of our lives. 

Dry Bones’ aim is to learn to live from and then inspire belief in a life-giving, redeeming, and beautiful new narrative. 

After you watch this video, we invite you to consider these questions: Read More

A Couple of Reflections from the Night
by Tim Henderson – board member since January, 2013

I’m a new Dry Bones board member, and I had never been to a Dry Bones fundraiser. I was finally able to attend this year! Here are a few reflections:

The venue was great and the food was fun. The planning was evident. The auction was enjoyable and effective.

But what I am taking away is the importance of story. The story of individuals who are discovering hope. The story of  people sharing Read More

“I know she’s going to kick me to the curb. You’re gonna be walking downtown, and you’ll see me Matt. You’ll say, ‘Why are you down here? I thought you had your life together!’ And I’m like you, Matt. I thought this was it. I thought I had finally done it; thought I’d never go back! I didn’t think I would ever have to sleep under a bridge again.  You’ve got to help me! Read More

A GENUINE “THANK YOU” TO YOU AND SARAH

June 28, 2013 | By | One Comment

Dry Bones has been supported by all of you for 11 1/2 years now.  We are sincerely thankful.

As a non-profit ministry, it has been quite the adventure to continuously depend on God’s provision in so many different ways. He has taken care of Dry Bones through generous gifts of $20 here and $500 there; hot meals for huge groups and family meals for ten. Read More

Purple Door Coffee Exceeds Your Expectations

June 27, 2013 | By | No Comments

From a recent Yelp review:

I pictured a kind of run down coffee shop in a bad neighborhood…But for a good cause. Boy was I surprised! This place is super nice, comfortable, clean…Seriously, one of the nicest coffee shops I have visited.

I can’t say that this is the first time we have heard this, “What? Wow!” response. Read More

Thoughts on Ezekiel 37

by Lance Newsom
Dry Bones Board Member

Ezekiel 37 provides a center; a core to the orbiting story that is Dry Bones Denver. It’s foundational to what this ministry is all about. “The Valley of Dry Bones”… it kind of sounds a bit like the title of a bad horror film, doesn’t it? Read More

Purple Door Coffee

May 23, 2013 | By | No Comments

Purple Door Coffee began as a dream in 2007.

It’s always been Dry Bones’ mode of operation to “not reinvent the wheel.” If there’s a great GED, housing, or medical program, then let’s partner with them! We don’t need to start our own program. Partnership is our forte. (You can read a little more about our value of partnership vs ownership here.) Read More

Spring is one of my favorite seasons.  Warmer temperatures, longer days, rain showers, and sunshine.  But one of the things I love the most is seeing the slow progression back to life.  Read More

This past December, we celebrated Christmas by sharing specially designed Dry Bones silver coins with our friends on the streets.
