That's where car buffs from Christ Lutheran of Lincoln, Nebraska have a wrench up on all the competition. They not only diagnose car troubles, but also volunteer to remedy them.
As part of their “Christ in the Community” mission, these mechanics devote a number of Saturdays toward fixing cars for free. They see this as a way to help raise people from poverty.
As church member Curt Jones explains, having no working vehicle limits housing choices, grocery shopping and job searches. He states: Those of us who are middle class take so much for granted.
The world rapidly shrinks without a reliable car. Just knowing that people care enough to provide this labor of love goes a long way toward driving the Gospel home.
