I AM NOT A GOAT!
Reference Matthew 25:31-46
I Will Not Be a Goat!
No kid-ding! (he says sheepishly) This site truly is about sheep and goats. Which one are you?
This site is associated with a Bible passage where Jesus separated people as sheep (followers of the Shepherd) and goats based on their response to needs of His body, the Christian church. In this message, and others, Jesus' main focus is on needs of the body, not the needs of the general population. Please read the article Sheep and Goats for a better understanding of the context of this page.

Generally, people will not offer help until they are aware there is a need. That communication link has room to grow, at least for churches and ministries in the Twin Cities area.
Churches seldom post needs on the generic volunteer sites, for a variety reasons I won't get in to. It would be nice if there was a "safe" place for them to share needs and opportunities.
If you are interested in funding tools or wages to provide better tools strictly for the needs and opportunities of ministries and churches (the body), let me know. My main interest at this time is the north central states. But if the information is organized well, it could be nationwide. Or....perhaps we just need to use the existing tools more consistently.
