Monday Night Men’s Study

Of the 14 of us in attendance tonight…
– At least three are ex-gang
– At least one has killed another person
– One trans
– One lesbian
– Probably 13 of us live below the poverty threshold
– Almost half are homeless
– Several are sex offenders
– All are trying to work together to live better

Even though it doesn’t make sense with the way the world works and it doesn’t even fit with much of what we’ve been taught about Christianity, we’re all looking to Jesus to show us the way!

“The Pharisees and their teachers of religious law complained bitterly to Jesus’ disciples, ‘Why do you eat and drink with such scum?’ When Jesus heard this, he said, “Healthy people don’t need a doctor—sick people do.” Then he added, “Now go and learn the meaning of this Scripture: ‘I want you to show mercy, not offer sacrifices.’ For I have come to call not those who think they are righteous, but those who know they are sinners.” (‭Luke‬ ‭5‬:‭30‬, Matthew‬ ‭9‬:‭12–13‬)

Just a boy with some bread and a few fish waiting to see what Jesus is going to do next.
