Dathouse is an attempt of feeble people to allow a loving, merciful, almighty, and mysterious GOD to live in and through us.  The “dat” stands for 3 Greek words that remind us of service, love, and humility.  We started out as some people living together in a “rougher” neighborhood trying to love our neighbors and share Jesus more by action than word.  We know way too many folks have heard about it, and wanted to know what it looks like lived out through the spirit at work in people.  We are messed up, but we just try to admit it, and move closer to our loving, caring Creator God. We have been humbled to learn so much from the people around us.  We have seen a lot of things that could, and at times has, discouraged us. But we know the hope in Jesus!  We know that the “Kingdom of God” looks different than this world and even seems hopeless in this world…  BUT we firmly believe in sacrificial love and the reality of RESURRECTION!!!!  We are here, and we plan on loving the HELL out of people as Jesus has done, and is doing, for us.  Love is his way, and we desire it to be our way. Maybe if we love those who don’t love us back, we will win them over.  Maybe if we love without expecting anything in return, we will truly understand sacrificial love.  Maybe if we love “bad” people, we will no longer see them as such.  Maybe this kind of love can change the world. Maybe…just maybe. But regardless of what results we see, we will love, because that is what we have experienced from God.
