It does seem illustrative of the nature of what we are ultimately trying to do, God willing ... And I'm assuming that He is. We live and serve an area and a population that is as changing as the landscape that they inhabit. They come for the fleeting security of high wages and high rise living. It's an illusion that they've long dreamt about and that this neighborhood promises. However, they are still mere mortals, living among mortals, employed by mortals, pursuing a hope which only the immortal can provide. The instability of this place speaks to the instability of that which has brought them here. It's easy to get caught in it ... And much like quicksand, the more activity one puts into it, the deeper one gets.
So we are off again, sometime in the next few months, as our home becomes home to hundreds more ... Hundreds who, in the midst of pursuing the illusion, will long for the hope long sought after. Pray with us as we grab on and offer the handhold and stability of a relationship with Jesus.
