Encouragement from Sleaford StreetSource: "It was SO encouraging last night. No we may have had only one brief visitor (needing the loo) during the whole night at the café But we had SO many people acknowledging the great work that StreetSource is doing when we went around the streets of Sleaford. We had group hugs from really people who are only just older than teenagers, and 'RESPECT' shouted down the street. It got me thinking: given the stereotype view of 'Church' these days, what do these 'teenagers' see? Perhaps they see that the 'church' is Real, that the love that you unconditionally offer each week is tangible and a change from what they expect. I wonder how many teenagers would call across 'church folk' for a chat as they stand in the smoking area of a pub at 1am, but they do with StreetSource. To us all: Be encouraged, be truly encouraged.
