A Story of Reconnecting in Pittsburgh
During the day of unity of Adventist Churches held in Pittsburgh, Penn., on April 30, I taught a seminar on organizing Reconnecting Ministries. One of the participants shared her story of two divorces, rejection by church members, and a life of desperation on the street. It was the care of some young church members that she met and by the grace of God that helped her reconnect with the church. As she puts her life back together, she has attended several churches and can graphically describe how some congregations screen out people who are having difficulties. Despite these experiences, she feels that God is with her "as long as I keep my eyes on Jesus," and she now is holding meetings in her home with seven women she met during her journey.
