When a U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency survey found that one out of every 10 people in Baltimore is a drug addict, Methodist pastor Tim Warner decided enough was enough. Warner, Baltimore-Washington Conference coordinator for the "Holy Boldness" movement, met with local Methodists to plan a Christian assault on drug addiction.
"The yoke and bondage of drug addiction is going to be broken in Baltimore this summer," said Warner. "We are going to act with holy boldness and change our city one soul at a time." Tents will be erected in four Baltimore neighborhoods. By day they will offer social services. By night there will be vacation Bible school, a Jesus circus, street theater, and prayer meetings.
