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

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

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

Royalty

Royalty, by Dry Bones former staff member, Zach Smith, was written after a very informal lunch with a friend living on the streets. During this lunch, Zach and Robbie shared chili cheese dogs with their friend who is addicted to heroin. For a while, they were able to remind her of her immeasurable value and treat her as royalty. Thanks, Zach, for sharing your song with us.

The video footage in the background is of our good friend’s old bridge squat (no longer being used). Thanks, S*****, for sharing your former home with us and letting others see a different side of life.
