Drive through any city and you’ll see steeples or domes aspiring in the skyline. These houses of worship have a way of both standing out and fitting in. Businesses, town halls and residents join them as neighbors. Children walk by them on their way to school. Yet come Sunday morning, a different purpose emerges. The spiritual ideal of a church spreads beyond the spires where few notice the homeless shelters, hospitals and soup kitchens. Like the religious people that run them, the difference they make is felt more than seen.
