Hundreds of men and women are being released from our State Prisons and Jails tonight (and every night).
Many will be homeless. Many will be looking for a church to call “home.” A place to pray and seek God’s guidance.
And all of them will be looking for a warm embrace; a kind word, and for a genuine welcome.
This video, (the first in a series), might alert you to the issues they face; and maybe give you some ideas for how you can successfully welcome these strangers and pilgrims to your church.
As always we invite you to feel free to leave a comment or tell us your own story. We really do love hearing from you.
