Around the 55 minute mark of the 9/17/07 sermon by the Pastor of Arlington in the suburbs of Baltimore, Md, it is argued that congregants have an obligation to feed and board missionaries.
Frankly, is motel 6 not good enough anymore.
This guilt trip is layed on in part to convince members to house missionaries during a mission's conference.
Unless one wants to reembrace certain aspects of Roman Catholicism, Christian workers are no more important than the rest of us.
In his homily, he goes on about the need of six familes to step forward to house them.
But with two pastors on staff, a Christian school attached to the church, and who knows how many deascons, I find it interesting how the burden is farmed out on us common folks viewed little better as stupid hicks the rest of the time.
