I was at a town square last week and noticed homeless people sleeping in the 100 degree weather in the park. Standing in this park I could see 3 very large churches. When I went back to my computer, I looked at the map and found 7 churches within 1 block in any direction. This made me wonder and I had a chance later in the week to go into one of the air conditioned churches and ask if they had something for the homeless. They said there was a shelter nearby that focused on that kind of ministry. I was able to see how this church helped the lower income learn English. I was able to meet several people from China learning the English language.
The church worker stated how their church had tried to partner with some of the other churches but it was difficult to work with different denominations.
There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise. Galatians 3:28-29(NIV)
What do you think about this? Do you think we should work between different denominations to help solve problems for the kingdom? How do you deal with this? Are you more focused on a church rather than the work needed to be done? What are you doing to help the church?
