Sometimes I’m at just a total loss. If we had the money today we could keep one family in a hotel until their disability check comes through. But that would take hundreds of dollars we don’t have at NLEC. Shelters are full and so many more new wage earners enter the sojourning path because of a few hundred lousy bucks needed here or there. That devil of a few hundred dollars is in the way of a lot of people getting by this year. This Christmas at your church, while you admire the poinsettas and the live nativity and the thousands of dollars spent to remember a homeless baby in a feed trough, there’s a family in a hotel that can’t pay for another night’s stay. The shelters are full. Did your church budget in some money for the homeless this year?
