A poorer than usual neighborhood in Philadelphia experienced a massive fire.  A shelter was set up for those whose homes were burned…but no one showed up to the shelter.  Why?  Because neighbors whose homes weren’t burned invited their neighbors to stay with them.  Why?  Because they loved their neighbors.  Why?  Because they knew them and knew that the strength of the neighborhood was invested in each neighbor.  Why?  Because some crazy Christians began to slowly love their neighbors – one at a time – in this neighborhood.  Who has eaten in your home kitchen lately?
