40 Days of Trinity:
The 2013 Lenten season will be a lot different from last years journey of homelessness. This year, I have committed myself to meet with different members or couples from my church (www.trinitybaptist.org) and write down their stories on my personal blog http://www.gavinrogers.com. Some of these people went through wars, depressions, the civil rights movement, church corruption, family trials, and great success.
Last year I stressed “Humanizing Your Neighbor” above all. And for me that was learning to walk along my unhoused neighbors near my home and church in Downtown San Antonio, Texas. However, it hit me this year…have I been loving my church parishioners the same way I have loved the people “outside the church walls.” I think many people would agree that was true. So…I wanted to find out more about the people inside my church walls. Here are their stories.
(You can still read the 2012 blog at http://www.40daysofhaven.com. I will post on the old site when reflecting about 2012 and when I sleep on the San Antonio streets some days during Lent.) For a good debrief of Lent 2012 please click on the 2012 Lent tab above.
