Here are friends from an inner-city “village,” encouraging Christians to come alongside them. In my 27 years of inner city work, I’ve seen perhaps six churches in the Chattanooga area whose members intentionally go into the inner city to regularly hangout with residents. Fear, indifference, and perhaps not wanting to identify with materially poorer people are probably the main reasons. “A poor man is shunned by all his relatives-- how much more do his friends avoid him!” (Pro 19:7 NIV) Please listen.
