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?
