This day was going to be another crazy day! We took the cross down to the Harry Hines area recently to love on and meet with addicts and prostitutes. We have learned that many drug addicts and prostitutes hang out early in the morning because they are either out all night or they are needing … Continue reading CARRYING THE CROSS AMONG ADDICTS AND PROSTITUTES
I think we can greatly take for granted all the “sinners” Jesus connected with in the New Testament. I mean its CRAZY who Jesus used to spread his message if you really think about it. All through the New Testament, Jesus is hanging out with “sinners” and he used them to spread his message. Can … Continue reading JESUS IS RECRUITING SINNERS

The goal is simply to love them, be a friend, and share your life with them. One of the sad realities … Continue reading LOVING PEOPLE LIVING WITH AIDS
Our team does the best we can to hang out with people from all walks of life. We are not perfect at doing this by any means, but we are trying every week to do better. We hang out with Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, Agnostics, and Atheists. We hang out in temples and mosques and go … Continue reading ARE PEOPLE REALLY INTERESTED IN GOD?
