Building the Dry Bones Inner Sense of “Home”

November 10, 2015 | By | One Comment

Being at home is not the same as being in a house. However, the brick and mortar structure provides spaces that represent different parts of being at “home.” If we think about Dry Bones as if it were a house and the rooms of the house for their different uses and functions, we can lay out the work of Dry Bones like we lay out the rooms of the house.

STALE FRIES AND HALF-EATEN HAMBURGERS

October 8, 2014 | By | No Comments

It was well after dark on a cool November downtown Denver night. I’ll never forget the time my wife, Nikki, and I spent walking along 16th Street with our new friends, “Mistika” and “Pockets”. We spent the next hour talking about life, laughing together, and panhandling for leftovers – a first for me.

We eventually scored some stale fries and a half-eaten hamburger from someone leaving the Cheesecake Factory. We sat down on a curb and passed the styrofoam container around.  Read More

THOUGHTS ON “REACH”

December 19, 2013 | By | No Comments

by Robbie Goldman

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
