As our religious communities celebrate Passover and Easter, I wonder how much longer it will take to provide adequate shelter for the homeless in our community.
The Jewish, Muslim and Christian traditions teach that we must care for our brothers and sisters in need. We are taught that whatsoever we do to the least among us, that we do to God.
So, during this "holy week," let's examine our consciences and ask ourselves, if God came down to earth as a homeless person today, would God find a home here? Would God be welcome in Sarasota? But wait, God is already here!
