Something strange happened to me recently


I was hanging out at a friends place. He lives in a not so great area of town. I noticed how neighbours would come over to visit and how people would sit out on their steps and play guitar or just hang out. I sensed a sense of interconnectedness and community. It reminded me of the time I lived in the dormitory at Bethany. When I returned to my nice clean white middle class neighbourhood I felt jealous. I wonder if God is calling me down there.

    My wife & I made that choice ourselves and have never regretted it. Do it!

    Peace,

    Jamie

    The bible is much more about distribution of resources, rather than hoarding. check out http://www.ccda.org/?p=9 . With that being said, all 7 murders this year in saskatoon happened on the west side…

    be jealous of the poor, for they have nothing you can take, and give all because they have nothing to lose.
