Become one of God’s Watchers

The following quote (with a few detail changes to fit HATI) is from the article God in the Background by Diane Marten from the April 2013 issue of Gather magazine used with permission. Although the author is describing her  experience volunteering at a women’s shelter, it’s an excellent description of what it’s like to be a volunteer at Hope at the Inn.

“A dimly lit room (in any area church) is God’s safe background.  While (several people) sleep on (air mattresses) in small (Sunday school rooms), the volunteers stay awake to keep vigil.  We are God’s watchers, giving up our own sleep for the sake of others, those who have no home, who carry their lives in plastic bags. We volunteers fill in the space of God’s background with hope and love, with listening and laughter and a willingness to linger into the morning, just by staying in that place."
