(Relevant) Back in October, we wrote about the city of Brookings, Oregon, where the city council was determined to crack down on feeding the homeless. The city passed a new law that says churches are only allowed to host soup kitchens twice a week. At the time, local pastor Rev. Bernie Lindley of St. Timothy’s Episcopal was defiant, saying “We’re not going to stop feeding.
They’re going to have to handcuff me and take me to jail, which they won’t do. So it’s not going to happen; we’re not going to stop feeding. We’re going to do what Christ compels us to do.”
