Christmas Party for the Bridge Ministry 12/11/17

Allow me to step away from the wedding recitations for a change to gush about what Candy Christmas does through her Bridge Ministry to feed the hungry in Nashville and for her volunteers who help make her ministry happen.

Every Tuesday night through the efforts and perseverance of gospel singer, Candy Christmas, several big trucks pull up under the Jefferson Street bridge to serve hot meals to the homeless population and minister to their spiritual needs as well.  She started this ministry years ago with a big pot of jumbalaya she cooked herself.  Now an army of volunteers prepare and serve tens of thousands of meals to the homeless over the year.  They have expanded to feed children and provide clothes for those in need.

Every December Candy hosts a Christmas party for the volunteers and asks Silver Strings to provide the music.  We jump at the chance to be a part of the thanks to these tireless workers.  It’s humbling but exhilarating to be a part of these festivities.
