No Room in the Inn

I love the rain. I love walking in the rain, but I also like being inside where it’s warm, cozy & dry when it’s raining outside. It’s been raining for most of the day today and I’ve really enjoyed it.
At the same time I’ve been thinking a lot today about the folks here in the City who have no shelter from the rain. I’ve been thinking about the emergency shelter for El Niño… or lack there of.  

I searched online for “San Francisco rain homeless” and half of the first page search results were articles about how the cathedral installed a sprinkler system to douse the homeless seeking refuge on their steps. Maybe that’s a sign… that churches need to open their doors and welcome people in from the storm. Christmas time is a perfect time to be doing this. You know… the Christmas story… and that whole no room in the inn thing…
