Jason Harper is a pastor somewhere in America. He preached a message about the importance of "getting into the gutter" with people, only to be chastised by an old lady in his church.
"How can you talk about getting into the gutter when you work in a church all the time?" she asked.
It got to him, and Jason set about looking for one of the hardest jobs he could take. He wanted to keep it legal, so drug dealing or pimping was out of the question, but debt collection seemed to fit the criteria of "despised profession".
His experiment: to see if he could do the job, and also bring the reality of the gospel message into people's lives.
How did he go? Can you do the work successfully, as well as loving people?
