VIDEO: Father Jonathan Morris & the Beggar Who Hit the Jesus Lottery

In this week’s video from Father Jonathan Morris, he offers a reflection on the patience of God using a personal example of an encounter he had with a homeless man asking for money for food.

It’s an encounter that requires Father Jonathan to display an unexpected level of trust in the homeless man who approached him – and, by extension, an unexpected level of trust in God.
