"No Room At The Inn" DVD Curriculum Review


I recently received a copy of the Hungry Planet Bible Project's DVD curriculum No Room At The Inn.  Unfortunately, I received it too late to use it as part of my 2009 Advent studies.  I will without a doubt be using this next year.  My church has recently undergone a huge transformation.  We launched a food ministry to cook one meal a week and to distribute food to the hungry as needed.  We also launched a clothes closet for needy families to find clothes.  Along with existing ministries to at-risk children and partnerships with our local elementary school to tutor students who are falling behind, we have moved from being a church that primarily was concerned with self-preservation to one that is concerned with giving itself away for the kingdom of God.  No Room At The Inn would have been a vital part of that transformation, but I know that God has a plan for its use in my church next year.  The stories that are told on the DVD by the people affected by homelessness are poignant, and extraordinarily moving.  The program provides resources and guides on how to coordinate wide-scale food drives, and ways to reach out to the homeless and hopeless in your community.  Basically everything you need to launch a full-scale attack on poverty, homelessness and hunger in your community is right here.  I highly recommend it.
