Our winter endeavors are being highlighted in our local newspaper (The Pottstown Mercury)as a three-day seven-part series on homelessness in our city.
We faced a challenge this winter of having no provision for the homeless community locally, and as the church, simply could not tolerate the situation, moving us to action.
The effort resulted in calling all local churches to rally in protecting the least. What a blessing.
Here is the scoop from the writer:”Wanted to let you know that I just finished proofing the final layout of the series and it is incredible!””It is seven stories, plus some national info which supports the local angle, and will run over the course of this Sun., Mon., and Tues. It is the A1 (above the fold) on all three days.
As Kork said, I really hope this isn’t the end but the beginning. Once weget some community response rolling in… that’s when the magic happens.”
Also, the Philadelphia Inquirer is coming to our shelter tonight and has interviewed us as well.We have not pursued any of this attention, but have simply watched as God has brought this all to bear. I am just amazed by our God!
