As I read through various articles online regarding homelessness, the statistics are staggering and the stories heartwrenching. In that moment, I can be overwhelmed by the issue and yet as soon as something else captures my attention I tend to push it to the back of my mind. I feel complelled to ask “so what?”–so what should we as Christians be doing to address a problem so large and vast that is impacted by variables far outside of our control? Hope Into Action’s ‘Get Involved‘ page has a list of ways to be involved:
1 John 3:17-18 17 If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person? 18 Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.
