Here is an article by Seattle Times writers Amy Roe and Sara Jean Green called Homeless on a quest for warmth about the plight of homeless people during our unusually frigid weather.
As I write this, it is snowing outside and 23 degrees, and I feel a bit chilly in my warm, heated, insulated home. Tonight 20 men will arrive at my church for a warm place to sleep. On this street alone, three churches are hosting shelters this evening. It's not nearly enough, but what else can small (even large) churches do? Perhaps we should get together and make emergency plans for unusually extreme weather of all kinds. It's a thought.
