Dear Trinity family and friends,
 
“A Walk Through Chicago”…
 
We were in a church worshipping the Lord, when someone shared with us, these words, which are imprinted on my mind,
 
“How can you worship a homeless man on Sunday and walk by homeless person on Monday?”
 
In 1990, as the campus chaplain at California University of Pennsylvania, we took students on a missions trip to Chicago. Every day I thought of those haunting words as I walked through the streets of that great city.
We stayed in an area of South Chicago called Roseland (with about 100,000 people).
 
We worked with a pastor who served his Christian Reformed Church about twenty years.  Though he was raised in a rural area, he believed that God called him to work in the city.  On Sunday we attended the worship service.  It was about two hours in length of time.  Lots of music and singing.  His sermon dealt with the difficult lives they lived in the city.
 
This amazing small church allowed eighty homeless men to sleep and stay in the church basement.  In the morning they cooked meals. Many folk had mental health struggles.  Yet, as the week progressed we came to know many
of the men as people who were very caring people.
 
Several events which I recall included meeting with a lawyer who believed his work was to be an advocate for those who could never give back to him.
He saw his work as bringing people together in mediation. To bring healing, to find solutions.
 
We also placed vinyl on a floor in one lady’s home.  Just practical everyday items that we take for granted were big projects for others.
 
Through the years, I have met many college students who wanted to make a difference in this world. I would watch television news reports and say
 
“Why doesn’t somebody do something about this?”
Then I realized — I was somebody.
 
As we walk through the Lower Burrells, New Kensingtons, and Chicagos of our lives, the words of Jesus ring clear today as
in  Matthew 25:31-46, our Lord says,
 
“Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these
who are members of my family, you did it to me.”
 
The walk through Chicago was an experience I will never forget.
