An Orderly Line

We had an orderly line for the first time in years on June 7th. A couple of the guys were so embarrassed by the behavior of the crowd recently that they proposed a different way to handle the line. They organized the guys in a line on the sidewalk ten feet away from where we serve, before we got there.

We set up and when we were ready, one of our people let five at a time approach the “buffet” line. It worked! Everyone got something. Things were distributed much more equitably. There wasn’t the shouting, jostling and grabbing that we have seen recently. Praise God!
