Church Closes Food Bank Because…It Attracts Poor PeoplePosted by Phil Ferguson on February 13th, 2013 – 3 Comments – Posted in Uncategorized
Church Closes Food Bank! I saw this image being shared on the internet. There is no date so, I thought it had to be a hoax. They could not be that cruel. Could they?
Sadly, I searched the web and found confirmation.
The Unity Truth Centre on Arlington is standing by its decision to close the food bank that Winnipeg Harvest operated on its property.
…the minister wants her congregation to focus on more “church-like” activities.
What would that be? Slavery? Genocide? If you won’t even give the appearance of helping what good are you? (psst… none)
Prossen says people in the congregation meant well when they first decided to get involved in the food bank.
But she says the group had been without a minister or leadership for years, and now, it needs to return to more spiritual pursuits.
A group of citizens can do more good than a church. People do good works not churches.
“I don’t know why it would be hard to understand that we are a church and we must identify ourselves as that in our community.”
Consider yourself identified!
