We watch the news, see the issues in our country and city, and see the big gap between those who have so much opportunity, and those who do not. We are also aware of all that is not right in our own hearts, and in our own relationships. This is why Christmas is good news. Unto us a child is born… It is this Christmas story that motivates the work and mission of Next Step. We believe that God’s kingdom is here, and that we (and you) get to choose each day how we participate in the restoration of this brokenness that we all see and feel. People continue to come through our doors, looking for a job, and a chance at a hopeful future. We receive letters from those in prison, asking us to pray for them, and to open our doors to them when they are released. There is more work to do.
