"Go to the people"

This morning as we were eating breakfast, a man I hadn't seen before came into the house looking nervous. He said he had a court date in the next town and needed a bus ticket. When Heather went to see if we had money for that, he asked for food so I warmed up some macaroni and cheese and brought him a cup of coffee.

As we were walking with him to the bus station, the conversation somehow turned to religion. And Charles said, "They always tell people to come to the church. But Jesus went right out to the people, he walked in their neighborhoods, their homes. That's what the pastors should do. Go to the people." I agree. We all should do that.
