A wedding under a bridge

“But when you give a feast, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you. For you will be repaid at the resurrection of the just.” Luke 14:13

Grace writes at Grace for the Road about a friend who got married April 23 under a bridge in Nashville, Tennessee, after serving a feast for the homeless:

… She’s not homeless. Never has been. Neither has her fiancé.

They just have tasted the grace of God and see people through the eyes of Christ.

As a train whistle echoed under the bridge and Tuesday evening rush hour traffic shook the concrete, Amanda smiled out at a sea of brothers and sisters as the band played and sang …

There are no strangers
There are no outcasts
There are no orphans of God
So many fallen, but hallelujah
There are no orphans of God.

And then they pledged to love each other for a lifetime as they loved the “outcast” together.
