Poverty Has A Name

Romans 15:1-7

We say we love the poor, but if so, what are their names? Do we know them just via statistics or through a car window as we drive by? Are there different types of poverty? And how are those who are strong at something supposed to use their strength? The truth is that poverty does have a name and sometimes it's your name. It's ok because poverty has another name, Jesus, who became poor so that we might become rich. In this sermon we also hear from some people who left their homes to live on the street for a few days to better know our homeless friends, as well as hearing from a couple of our friends who have been or are homeless now.
