November is here now, but fortunately not the snow yet. I have yet to see the television offer a full-blown Christmas advertisement, but I sense that is because it is preoccupied with the presidential election. And I reflect on HOME, the homeless, and the approaching holidays and wonder what has changed since last year? Has my ministry and/or this blog made any difference? Did Jesus???
SUDDENLY FRUSTRATION OF FUTILITY SETS IN
I could say all the same stuff again this year, just in time for the holidays, and I am touched by all the traffic my Christmas Eve post last year generated, but I see NO DIFFERENCE it made.
Here’s the thing:
On this blog, I make NO EFFORT to change the homeless; rather I make every effort to get the White, Middle-class “Christians” (of Lubbock, Texas specifically) to REPENT and make some serious changes. Specifically, I promote the idea that the churches of this town OPEN their doors to the poor at night, and for Christians with spare bedrooms to open their HOMEs to the homeless!
How much has changed?
Not much. So, I am stuck making the usual offerings. And I am kinda disheartened by it. I am a broken record offering the message of God’s LOVE which falls again on deaf ears.
So, let me just link you to the usual blog posts. I will put them all together for easy perusal. I am not hoping you are blessed. I am hoping you become a blessing!
Please. Please! PLEASE!!! Let’s make some changes this year!
(btw, to all those Christian bloggers who lament Halloween celebrations for their pagan influence on the faith, I challenge you to turn your guns on BLACK FRIDAY and CYBER SATURDAY too!)
