96. I know we all think of churches as "place to go to get help", but that is sooo last century.
For the most part, and I'm sure there are exceptions, churches DON"T accept anyone coming asking for help. They sent them elsewhere.

And those elsewheres are usually agencies, and a lot of them don't treat people very well, don't have many resources, and .... well, are often just a wild goose chase.

I appreciate your efforts, and there is definitely a need for people to help each other.

However, please remember that unless and until we start working for JUSTICE, there are many needs that won't get met.
