Welcome, Stranger

Posted by Jack

Several weeks ago, as a part of our efforts to reach out to the Body of Christ in the area, Tim Miller and I attended a Sunday morning service at a church in downtown Springfield.

We love this church and the members of the Body represented there.

To call this church affluent is an understatement.

Beggars can't be Choosers: It's the Law

Posted by Jack
(a) No person, either directly or indirectly, shall beg, or solicit alms or ask subsistence by charity in and upon the streets or public places of the City, or enter a dwelling, yard or enclosure without the permission of the owner or occupant thereof to beg, solicit alms or ask subsistence by charity.
(Ord. 1970. Passed 9-15-24.)

(b) Whoever violates this section is guilty of a minor misdemeanor.

This is an ordinance still on the books here in Springfield, OH.
