Street Sweepers

What is a Street Sweeper?

A better question might be: Who is a Street Sweeper?

To me, a Street Sweeper is someone who knows their role and does it to the very best of their God-given abilities. A Street Sweeper doesn't complain, doesn't worry about titles or money and doesn't seek glory for themselves. A Street Sweeper goes above and beyond with the big things and little things. Watching a Street Sweeper work is like a beautiful view after a hike or a sunset. Describing it just doesn’t do it justice but hey, a man can try.

Below are some Street Sweepers that I got blessed to meet and watch while they were street sweeping!

Street Sweeper Stories

“If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.”

- Martin Luther King Jr.
