back home again… for a week

Five of us from LCM spent last week in the Twin Cities. We did a service trip, spending time at a homeless shelter, a food pantry, and an after-school program. It was an excellent experience, and one that I need to still process.

One thing that I was struck by was the gradations of homelessness. The thing that came up a few times was that, when people have a place to sleep, when they have four walls and a roof, they don’t necessarily consider themselves homeless. That was interesting to me, and something that I didn’t consider before.

It was an eye-opening trip.

I should write more and study.
