Retired pastor starts house church in nursing home

“I came in here (to live), and thought ‘What will I do here?'” Rev. Jackson said. “The aides would come in and say, ‘It’s time for bingo, Fred.’ No thanks. I’ve got to have some action. The Lord equipped me for ministry; I may have stopped parish ministry, but I have not stopped being a pastor. … having lived here a year, I know they need it.”
