Monday Morning Insight has been covering compassion on all cylinders recently. We talked about the church that cut off their electricity for missions, but have you heard about the pastor who wanted to test his congregation’s grasp of compassion?
Pastor Tommy Jackson disguised himself in raggedy clothes, reeking of alcohol, and he meandered around his church during a Sunday service. The idea was to test how much his church was grasping the current series on love and compassion. A local TV station has the video from the morning. And from the looks of things, it seems they passed. His members took time to help the man, talk with him and pray with him on their way into church.
Oh, and he’s planning more surprises in the future … no telling where this will lead, but it has us interested.
