Front Door Chapel

Have you ever stopped to think about Jesus and how He always met people where they were? To approach Him, the population did not need to go to a fancy cathedral or to a parade path where they could see him on a float. He didn't wave to them from distance balconies, nor were appointments necessary. Jesus lived among people, meeting them in the places they lived, worked, and socialized. He was one with humanity. And He still is! We can take great counsel from his example, as we are encouraged to be salt and light to those around us. Instead of expecting others to dress, look, and act a certain way to meet 'our' expectations of how they 'should' be, we should instead follow the example of Jesus and meet people where they are, in their own way, and in their own style. I especially enjoy the chapel in the photo because it shows that someone is doing just that! The Front Door Chapel is parked in a very busy semi-truck parking lot at a junction where truckers stop for food, water, and fuel. A central point between California, Washington, Oregon, and Idaho, it provides opportunity for soul food! God bless them!
