Last night, at the request of a reader, I started a thread on Ypsi churches. Among the comments which followed the post, was one from a woman identifying herself as an Ypsilanti minister. In it, she mentioned two ambitious endeavors being undertaken by Ypsi churches. I’ve asked for more information, but, here, in the meantime, is the section of her comment which I found of interest.
…First let me say, that the American church is changing. I can say there are little pockets of people who take being a believer seriously, and who want to love ALL people! The church is coming out of an age of legalism, judgment, and moving away from past hurts. Great things are happening in the Ypsilanti area in regards to the church. For instance did you know that there is a plan to build a church that will house, feed, and educate the homeless in our area? There are also plans to build a working farm, which will teach and train ex-prisoners renewable and sustainable living….
If anyone out there has any additional information on either of these projects, I’d love to know more.
