Councilman, pastor spend night sleeping on street ahead of Easter Sunday

From Austin-

A San Antonio city councilman spent part of Good Friday sleeping on the street after a pastor invited him to live among the homeless for a night.

"In a way, you could say Jesus was homeless," said Gavin Rogers, pastor of Christ Episcopal Church. "It's hard for us to imagine that, but in a way, his at least three years in ministry, he had no place to lay his head."

District 4 Councilman Ray SaldaƱa visited Haven for Hope and slept on the sidewalk in front of a church Thursday evening into Friday morning. Lewis Williams, who's been homeless off and on for eight years, helped him with the essentials.
