This Is How You Say…

As I confront my brothers and sisters in church about the homeless drifting past their church-house doors through the night, believe it or not, I sometimes get the stunned response: What do you expect us to do?

The short answer is: OPEN THE DOOR!!!

How can you not see that?  You really gotta struggle with not wanting to some how.  Your contempt lies behind such bone-headed questions.

And then I saw this ad by the American Red Cross that actually dares to give instruction on what/how to say: “It’s going to be okay…”

Perhaps… if the church won’t listen to Jesus, she might learn something from the Red Cross?

Worth consideration.

    Agent X, I am not sure how to message you, other than to comment on a post. So… this has nothing to do with this post. I want to have a conversation with you on some of the tough issues that cause homelessness – on how we can help. My e-mail address is [blahblahblahblahblah].com. Thanks.
