Church Under the Bridge

Last night, I went with six other women to “Church Under the Bridge.” CUB is an outreach that began in Waco, Texas with the purpose: “to be a center of fellowship, worship and benevolence in support of those in need in San Antonio, primarily the homeless. Our goal is to reach out to them with the love of Jesus, equipping them to serve God and their fellow man. We accomplish this through both spiritual and physical means by preaching, singing and teaching the Word of God, fellowship, meals and clothing.”
Services are held Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday evenings. The service begins with worship music, followed by a short sermon, and then concludes with the serving of a hot meal. Last night, our group had the privilege to bring and serve the meal to about 40 hungry and grateful people (and 4 dogs). :-)
The group of people who coordinate and conduct this outreach have amazing hearts for God and people in need. Some of them at one time or another have been homeless themselves, so they are able to relate in a way that makes it a comfortable setting for even the most cautious seekers.
We all were extremely humbled by this experience, choking back tears at times and praising God for such a wonderful opportunity.
“The People who gather at Church Under the Bridge, are loved by God, and the Lord Jesus calls us to love them with His love.”

Is that for real?

A friend sent me this picture of the Colts locker room after their Super Bowl win. I’m not a football fan, but I couldn’t resist posting such a rare and heartening picture. (Jon just burst my bubble, and told me that it is probably really not that uncommon…I still think it is neat)!
