Would you wash the feet of the homeless in Savannah? from: Lord Save Us Movie Dan Merchant Blog


Sojourners, Cathleen Falsani:

“Perhaps the most powerfully moving scenes involve Christian volunteers who regularly set up camp in an area of Portland, Oregon, frequented by homeless folks, providing health care, washing and cutting their hair, even bathing their feet. That quiet service, unconditional love, and hands-on compassion, Merchant says, is what Christianity really is. And that’s a message that cannot be heard if it’s shouted.”

There are plenty of examples as far back as 2005 in Oregon – found in this story:
