“All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation.”
(2 Cor 5:18-19)
We have been called to share the good news that through Christ we have been made new. Through meeting tangible needs and building relationships with those experiencing homelessness we are able to be Christ’s ambassadors to those in need of good news, while being stretched and transformed ourselves.
