Product Description

In "Watering the Greyhound Garden," Warren B. Smith recounts his job as a Travelers Aid social worker at the San Francisco Greyhound Bus Terminal. In fifty-one heartfelt stories, Smith describes some of the many people he encountered at the depot and on the streets of San Francisco. Meet Banjo Bobby Brown, Waldo Weinstein, the Pacific Heights Teenager, the "Drunken" policeman, the Strong Man, the Minnesota Gambler, the Oklahoma Kid, the Tennessee Thompsons, and many more. The Greyhound Bus Terminal was like a modern-day Jericho Road, where broken-down travelers were in urgent need of help. From California dreamers and state hospital runaways to an abused housewife, a stranded grandmother, a suicidal transvestite, and a seventy-three-year-old man still riding the rails--the author met them all when they needed help from Travelers Aid. With compassion and careful attention to detail, the author describes the challenges and joys of working for Travelers Aid and in "watering" what he calls "the Greyhound garden."

People he met on the road to Damascus

This heart-warming book will challenge your perspective on evangelism. We are commanded to "go ye into all the world" yet there are cities like San Francisco where the world becomes our door step. We are called to water the seeds then in time the Holy Spirit will send someone else into the harvest.
