 This Time, Next Year        

From the pastor: 

          On the last Sunday of every year, I preach a sermon titled "This Time, Next Year." The idea is that someone may be addicted, homeless, unemployed or estranged from family right now. But in a year's time, things could be quite different.
          The last Sunday of 2017 fell on New Year's Eve. I told the stories of two men who had been recently housed by consistently working with our social workers, Kathy Sharp and Robin Barton. Kenneth "Shorty" Powell had been on the street for one year, Sippio Wardlaw for an astonishing 35 years.
            Kenneth owned some property in Poe Mill, but had lost his housing due to multiple medical issues -- getting hit twice by cars, a heart attack, a moped wreck. But the real blow came when first his father, then his ex-wife died. He simply gave up, and was content to sleep between sheets of plastic on his land, and walk to Triune for worship, Bible study and meetings with Robin.
            It was Robin, he said, who convinced him that he had value and that he had a friend. In early December, he moved into a mobile home. He walks two miles to get to Triune on Sundays. 
           Sippio's story was more complicated. He came from a broken home, and the one thing he always wanted was to raise his children in a stable, two-parent household. Yet, when his marriage ended after 10 years, he refused to pay his court-ordered child support. It was the wrong decision, he says. and he doesn't know why he made it.
          But the two years he spent in and out of jail and losing jobs because of it landed him on the street at 31. That was in 1981, and there weren't nearly so many homeless people on the streets of Greenville. He slept on park benches and in unoccupied cars and buses, and for long stretches of time, in the Greenville Rescue Mission. He worked day labor but got into a dead-end pattern of spending his daily pay on crack cocaine.
           "I guess crack took away the pain for awhile," he said. "I just wanted the pain to ease up some kind of way.”
            I met Sippio when I arrived at Triune in 2005. He was 54 by then, and one of the kindest and most helpful people at the church. Still, in those days, he had no desire to change. 
        “I’d been outdoors for so long I couldn't imagine living inside," he said. 
         At 62, he began to receive a Social Security check, and though small -- $769 a month -- he saw it as an opportunity to make a plan. He stopped smoking crack. He saved a huge part of that check each month, and got his driver's license reinstated. Then he bought a used Toyota Camry. Then he moved into an apartment. We thought he was finished, but he went before the South Carolina Pardon and Parole Board and got a pardon for decades-old drug convictions. That made him eligible for a better apartment, and he moved in 2017.  
         Sippio is 66 now, and we have watched his progress with awe. He comes to Triune for every worship service and Bible study, and every Round Table and Welcome Home, which are support groups for our parishioners. 
          Shorty and Sippio prove it can be done, that building relationships and goal-setting can get them where they want to be. We hope that by telling their stories, more people will be sober and housed this time, next year. 
                                                  
 Blessings,
 Deb
