Rev. Lu Bettisch from Peace Lutheran Church had these words to share about what PADS means to her & her congregation, "I think I speak for the entire congregation of Peace Lutheran that we are humbled and honored to serve the homeless guests that stay in our building two nights a week during the season. Several of our members (including me!) volunteer to make sure our guests are comfortable, safe and treated with dignity and respect. As Lutheran Christians we believe that when we help those less fortunate, we are serving Jesus himself as stated in Matthew 25 “Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not take care of you?' Then he will answer them, 'Truly I tell you, just as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to me.’ ”
Thanks Rev. Lu & the Peace Lutheran folks for opening their doors & their hearts to the mission of PADS!
