At Open Table UCC, we say that we are "theologically progressive, Pottstown focused, with Jesus at the center". We understand that those are loaded phrases which are bursting with meaning, stories, questions, and convictions, so we are endeavoring to take the next 9 weeks to unravel each of those statements as we explore what it means to be followers of Jesus in the 21st century.
Today, we're talking with Tom Niarhos and Mark Boorse of Beacon of Hope. For the past three years, they have hosted warming shelters for the unhoused in Pottstown, and have plans to build a permanent shelter here as well. We talk about the people experiencing homelessness in Pottstown, solutions that work, and the exciting future ahead. We intentionally did not talk about any of the zoning issues that they have had or the slander that has been hurled at them. Our local Facebook groups and newspapers have covered that in detail (see below). We're here to nerd out about justice, and celebrate the good work being done for our unhoused Pottstownians.
Join us for Sunday worship services at the Steel River Playhouse (245 E High St, Pottstown, PA 19464) at 10am or online at https://www.opentablepottstown.com/live.
