It is important when we take responsibility for our geography to notice individual people--that whoever they are, they have been made in the image of God. We are to love as God loves.
Here is an example of how a church and community began to love those in their contexts who have special needs through a program called "Night to Shine."
“It’s not about the program we offer. It’s about what God’s been able to do in their individual lives because we happen to have a program.”
