So often, we remove ourselves from people who might be a little different than us, even ignoring people who desperately need us all year long. Then, around the holidays, we decide to engage those very same people, calling it humanitarianism, or charity, leaving us with warm holiday feelings. I truly do love who we become each Christmas season.
But consider, how those who are on the receiving end of our charity, feel. They don't regard themselves as anything special. In fact it can be down-right embarrassing for them as we do "ministry" at them. Most of them only want to be equal.
There can be a real poverty of a different kind among those who are above the poverty line--those "Well-Off."
Our community wants to bless them with Christ's charity this holiday season, to "minister" to them with God's mercy, and comfort.
Please join us, the Homeless Community, those with less, & Still Waters Church, in blessing those who are Comfortable this Christmas.
