We’ve had the model for ending poverty for 2,000 years. Let’s use it.
Breaking the cycle of poverty and homelessness requires something no social service provides: genuine relationships. A small community of people called a “table,” with their arms, hearts and minds open, forms around one person or family aptly referred to as a brother or sister because the relationships we aim for are those of an extended family. John 15:12-15
Just as you might open your social network, your home or your other resources to a family member in need, so too does the table because caring for others is a responsibility we have as representatives of the one who made us and set us free. Matthew 25:31-46 As the family relationship progresses the table shows the brother/sister how to find stability, break the cycle and realize his/her potential as a representative of the King.
