Local churches to provide shelter evenings
« on: May 17, 2017, 09:59:57 PM »
A news report I would like to read:

Several Big Isle churches have announced that they will provide a futon and clean bedding for their community's homeless. Evening guests must be out by 7:00 am. —absolutely no belongings left/stored on the premises. Volunteers will supervise the cleaning each morning. No reservations, first come first served each evening at 6:00 pm.

A spokesperson reports: Our facilities are underused. Instead of sending money (tithings) to other countries we have recommitted ourselves to taking care of our own community members. It doesn't speak well of our teachings when we have homeless and hungry neighbors.

Evening guests will not be asked to tithe as most are collecting welfare and therefore should not be giving that money to others until they can afford to do so responsibly.
