Hello everyone! I hope and pray the information below will be taken in the spirit it is intended, which is to encourage thought, prayer, and hopefully change. Instead of buying gifts for each other, use the money how JESUS/YESHUA’YAH would want. The links below include how one pastor made these changes. If churches started doing the same, including taking up a special offering [not only for Christmas but also each week] for a “building for the needy fund”, I wonder how long before enough money was raised to start the housing the homeless would like to see happen? In Central FL approximately 1 in 3 people do not have affordable housing. About 1 million people here alone! GOD/ELOHIM knows the numbers in all of Florida, the whole USA, and the World!
