1. For 16 years, John Kovac was a “tenant of a tunnel.” John and a few others lived underground in an abandoned railroad tunnel in New York City. When Amtrak bought the tunnel and prepared to reopen it, John was forced to look for a place to live above ground.

According to The New York Times, Mr. Kovac became the first person for a new program designed to “transform the homeless into homesteaders.”(1)

Without the family of God all of us, like John, live as “tenants of a tunnel,” underground, away from the light, isolated, out of touch with our greatest resource, the family of God; God’s people. We call it the Church.

*Mark DaHaan. Radio Bible Ministries. Tenant of the Tunnel. Oct. 9, 2003
