    Great probing post. The congregation I serve is in our second season of the program Room In The Inn. I know it doesn’t solve the problem, but it is a big step for a typical “downtown First Church”. No one can do it all, but everyone can do something!

      Pastor Randy,

      Yeah! That is exactly the first step kind of thing this blog aims to promote! We are all about churches opening doors to the Matthew-25:40-Jesus! Locked church-house doors just don’t compute. Bringing in the least of these does.

      Once that step is made, then we aim to get Jesus a room in the guest-bedrooms of the parishioners who attend there. (Yes, this is a complex/complicated step, with issues to work out, but it is the aim all the same).

      We don’t have that program in Lubbock. We used to have a similar program for homeless families with kids, but Family Promise now has facilities that do not require that kind of sacrifice from the church. (I think that is a mistake.) This is the church’s business.

        Yes, it is the church’s business, and the work of the Kingdom of God!
