Reaching the Couches

21 04 2010

More thoughts on the life of a couch surfer. My cousin lives from bed to bed amongst a huge community of fellow travelers, volunteers and couchsurfers (

From her conversations she seems to live in the kind of generous sharing growing community that resembles another community I read of in Acts 2, a different motivation but a similar life. There’s a lot of talk about reaching ‘new generations’ ‘next generation’ ‘post moderns’ In a new world, being authentic, sharing a life – marked by Christ in that community.

If people are receiving the message I heard – don’t travel, do waste time, don’t waste resources.. then where are those that are going to reach this community? What better way to serve if this is your passion than sharing your life and wasting time with people.

What other communities might we not be reaching?
