Enter In

The more I grow in my faith, the more I realize that so much of Christianity is really about this:

“Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.” (Galatians 6:2)

God cares about urban decay and slum housing. Shalom invites me into genuine sacrifice, relationship, and advocacy. Shalom says my neighbors’ burdens and concerns are my own.
