Ah, the mixed joy of dealing with deacons and elders! When your heart opens, your house opens.

I love this and I love your heart and compassion . . .
Thanks for sharing this heart warming entry and thank God for pastors with the kind of compassion as the one in your story.

If churches could or would take care of widows and orphans our world would be a better place.
This has a wonderful message. Especially with the financial crisis of late, there are a lot of people only a paycheck away from being homeless. That sad thing is the Church feels the pinch to and that prevents people from acting sometimes.
The title attracts attention, and that's good. The story invites the reader to participate in self analysis along with the story's characters. One minor bobble interrupted the story flow for me. If the word "up" was deleted from "The pastor went up...",I think that sentence would work better. All in all, well done.
