Relief Bus Ride

My father-in-law left his home in New Jersey this morning to ride across the country on his Harley.  He is riding to raise money to help feed & clothe the homeless, and it has also been a lifelong dream of his as well.  He is taking photographs and blogging about his experience traveling over 6400 miles to California and back.  Feel free to follow along!

"Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen:
to loose the chains of injustice
to untie the chords of the yoke,
to set the oppressed free
and break every yoke?
Is it not to share your food with the hungry
and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter--
when you see the naked, to clothe him,
and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?
Then your light will break forth like the dawn,
and your healing will quickly appear;
then your righteousness will go before you,
and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard.
Then you will call, and the Lord will answer;
you will cry for help, and he will say:  Here am I."
Isaiah 58:6-9
