What would you do if a very ill person showed up on your doorstep needing help? Would you help them? If so, how would you help and how much would you help? Would you continue to help even though the needy person made some poor decisions at times? Could you walk away knowing you leaving them in that situation may lead to their death? Where do you draw the line between helping and enabling? Is this line drawn in the same place for every person? These and other tough questions were the questions one small community church on the Oregon Coast struggled with while helping a homeless and sick man that showed up on their property. Read the true story of how the pastor and the church he serves grappled with tough questions, demanding events, and unexpected hardships as they sought to obey and follow Jesus through the difficult circumstances of ministry.
