Church and the Homeless
So, in that last series of posts, I tried to demonstrate that true followers of Christ would be channels of grace to the poor and suffering, whether the homeless and the prisoners in our own communities or the orphans and slaves across the world. What I struggled to articulate in blogland was powerfully shared by a guest speaker at Antioch last Sunday. Mike Yankoski is the author of Under the Overpass, which chronicles his five months living as a homeless person. I highly recommend the book (as life-changing), but for now would first suggest that you hear and see what he shared with us last week. Go here to download either the video or an audio-only version of that sermon.
