When the blessed poor want to stay on the church lawn

Interesting story given my last post and the words from Luke that many of us have been reading these last few weeks.

Tempers flared Feb. 11 at Faith United Methodist Church’s community meeting to discuss hosting Tent City 4.

With concerns for children, jobs and safety, almost 200 residents crowded into the church on Issaquah-Pine Lake Road in unincorporated King County. The meeting, according to Reverend Dr. John Brewer, was to share information about the possibility of housing the traveling homeless shelter on church grounds.
