-Rev Melissa Fain-
Those who exploit the powerless anger their maker, while those who are kind to the poor honor God.
Proverbs 14:31 CEB
Alexander Campbell was deeply invested in the Presbyterian Church. Both his dad and he were in ministry within the denomination. Only... that homeless man.
He wanted to have communion, and nothing was stopping him. He had done everything he had to do. Yet, he couldn't. He was stuck in two very real questions: Where is God, and are the people able to get to God? God was in communion, but there were those who couldn't come to the table. The homeless sat outside, unable to feast.
Alexander Campbell knew he was called to follow God. Where was God? God was outside the church, without a home. Campbell ultimately displaced himself in search for God. We can connect to God when we reach out to the displaced in our world.
Pray with me:
Dear Lord, from our security help us help those who are insecure. Amen.
