Here are a couple of examples of the church leaving their buildings in order to serve the homeless:
1. Ben Witherington points us to a NY Times article called “No Altar, No Pews, Not Even a Roof, But Very Much a Church“.
2. John (over at “In the Way“) and some of his friends spend time being the church with and to the homeless in Dallas.
God desires for his church to be salt and light in this world. The church should make a difference in the community. If not, then something is wrong. Are we willing to get up out of our pews and step out of our warm, comfortable buildings in order to meet people where they are? If not, then how will they taste the salt or see the light?
