Where will you sleep on March 31?

The poverty statistics in America are embarrassing: 35.9 million of our brothers and sisters live in poverty, 3.5 million of our brothers and sisters are homeless, and 1.3 million of these homeless are children.

On March 31 in cities and towns across the nation, people will choose to spend the night outside in solidarity with those who don't have a choice. Check out ToTheStreets.org to see if there is a coordinated sleep out near you.

Many Christians believe that social activism is an activity which functions apart from their faith, but I would argue that Matthew 25:31-46 shows that Jesus taught otherwise.
