Living on the streets for a week

The pastor of the church we attend, Kaleo, is living on the streets for a week. Each day he will be blogging about his experience. This is some of his first post:

“Jesus was led by His love for others into the world, to forget himself in the needs of others… Self-sacrifice means not indifference to our times and our fellows: it means absorption in them. It means forgetfulness of self in others. It means entering into every man’s hopes and fears, longings and despairs… It means that we should not live one life, but a thousand lives—binding ourselves to a thousand souls by such a loving sympathy that their lives become ours” (B.B. Warfield).

5 Reason why Tim is living on the streets:
1.We want to show the homeless that we love them
2.We want to get to learn the stories of the homeless in our community
3.We want to offer them something precious.
4.We want the church to grow in her love and understanding of the homeless who live among us.
5.We want to better understand our Savior.

Personally, I found number 5 to be so beautiful and encouraging! Check out his experience here!
