How Is Your Life Positioned?

If you couldn’t tell, these blog posts are usually scheduled in.  So this morning, I’m not sitting comfortably in my living room with a fresh cup of coffee.  Today I’m participating in a Homeless Immersion weekend in Toledo, Ohio.  It’s my intention to learn how such a program is done, so that I might try something similar in my neck of the woods.

I’ve spoken to loads of people who desire this.  Their lives have been positioned for success: comfortable home, good schools, steady and sufficient income, safe.  These are all good, admirable things that anyone wants.

But…so many other people don’t have them.

The well-positioned people suspect this, but they want to know more.  They want to do more.  They don’t want to wallow in ignorance.

And so they seek a new positioning, one that hits at this surprising sense of compassion within them.

Please pray for a wonderful weekend; that I may return with the tools to help others be positioned to understand the real plight of those in need.

  1. Erik, if you’re talking about Steve North’s program, I’d be happy to help you do that – I think you’re in NE Ohio, right? I’m recently relocated to North Olmsted and am itching to volunteer! Ask Steve about me – he’ll tell you that I can occasionally be helpful.
