Our fundraising event, “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner?” is coming up soon. We are excitedly working and planning (buy your tickets here)! With a hospitality-themed event in our near future, I’ve been reflecting on what hospitality is, how we encounter it, what keeps us from it, and what it can create in us. What you’ll see below is the first part in a series on hospitality that will be up on the blog soon.

Compassion

September 9, 2014 | By | No Comments

co-written by Annie & Robbie

The story of the valley of dry bones in Ezekiel 37 invites the question, “Can these bones live?” We hear these words today in Denver.

On many days, the dried up bones feel like Denver’s lack of safe and sustainable housing opportunities. (For this reason, we are currently exploring options for DB sponsored housing.) What is the solution? Can “these bones” live? 

The struggle of finding a place to live, heal, and sleep creates dramatic scenarios. For Dry Bones, these stories almost always involve that big question and they always require compassion. Allow me to share six scenes of an actual day-in-the-life: Read More

The City: Classroom, Parish, and Playground

May 1, 2014 | By | No Comments

Our good friends at the Center For Transforming Mission once challenged us to experience and engage the City in three creative ways: as classroom, parish, and playground.

This concept has become so meaningful to us through the years. Below, we’ve taken these three words and written just a few thoughts about each.  We hope that the following three concepts will allow you to begin to consider seeing, engaging, and experiencing your own city in some new ways.

“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

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

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
