Serving Those Who Serve

Podcast_Art2Welcome to the weekly podcast of “MY Brother’s Keeper,” inciting a conspiracy of kindness and good deeds. This podcast is your weekly opportunity to get informed and to join the conspiracy. We try to make certain that each podcast features information, lessons, insights and interviews concerning such issues as homelessness, hunger, and people in crisis. Our goal goes beyond talking about issues.  We want to combine practical solutions with personal encouragement and offer a challenge to our listeners to get personally involved. While our perspective is that of historic Evangelical Christian faith, and while much of our audience is Christian, the issues we discuss and the solutions we offer go far beyond the walls of any Church or religious organization. We hope you will listen, become part of the conversation, and join our growing conspiracy of kindness and good deeds.

“Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as you can.”  – John Wesley

This Week’s “Program Notes”

Program Opening: The last time you went out to eat, who did you see: A waiter, a waitress, a hostess, a cook, a cashier. Or did you see a person in need of comfort, encouragement, kindness and a good deed. I’m Maurice Smith and I want to talk to you today about serving those who serve, on this week’s edition of “My Brother’s Keeper.” 

Welcome to my extended interview with Kevin Finch (Founder and Executive Director) and Jill Lemon (Director of Operations) of “Big Table.” I have to confess that this was an eye-opening interview concerning their work with people involved in the restaurant and hotel (“hospitality”) industry in Spokane. After this interview, I don’t think you’ll be able to eat out without seeing the people around you differently.
