Being a homeless person, I have seen the needs of the homeless, and I have witnessed the pitiful excuse of ‘I’ll pray for you” taking the place of real love so many many times. This poem speaks a great truth – perhaps a truth greater than many can handle. If Christians really were responding to the needs of the homeless then there would be no homeless in this country. 178 Million adults in the US identify as “Christian”. There is only half a million homeless people here.
