A Night in a Car

February 8, 2017 |

Psalm 4:8 - In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, Lord, make me dwell in safety.

On February 3, 50 people of all ages gathered in the parking lot at Trinity Lutheran Church in Bloomington to spend the night in their cars.  The temperature dipped to 16 degrees.  Our Chief Operating Officer, Matt Burgess, said, "I was uncomfortable, unprepared, alone, and in the end exhausted - and can't imagine having to survive night after night without a safe, warm, comfortable place to sleep."  All the participants had a greater understanding of what it is like to not have the comforts of a home.  Please join me in praying for the safety of all who are without homes. 

Be joyful in HOPE, patient in affliction, and faithful in prayerRomans 12:12
