The clergyman sat in the middle of the congregation, and no one recognized him.
A call was made from the altar that each brethren should invite a member of the church they didn’t know to spend Christmas with them.
No one came to “the beggar”. They did not want to Identify with him.
The man of God then walked to the altar and addressed the congregation.
A member of the church, Onome (@Onome_tsd), who witnessed the scene shared the story on Instagram.
Below is what she wrote:
“My pastor, the senior pastor of @tkheritage, @lawrenceonochie was in the congregation today dressed like a nonentity, a nobody, a beggar and no one recognized him. When the call was made to invite someone they didn’t know to spend #Christmas with them. No one came to him, no one invited him because no one wanted to identify with him.”

“That’s the world we live in. We relate to those we feel are in the same social class with us and despise the needy, the hungry and extend help only to those who already have. That’s not what Christmas/Christianity is about. It is about caring for those in need, strangers, the despised.”
“Change your heart today and focus on what matters and what counts. Ask your self what would God do? Will God despise you when you are hungry, when you need shelter, when you are lonely, when you are sick?”
“People matter to God, let people also matter to you. Stop to help a stranger, put a smile on someone’s face. Christianity is not a talk. It is in the doing.
Merry #christmas #love #care #sharing”
