6:00 PM Circle of Care - Experiencing Homelessness
God Among the "Least of These":
Navigating Spiritual Waters with People Experiencing Homelessness presented by Lisa Levy, M.Div., Spiritual Support Coordinator for SEARCH Homeless Services
Thursday, January 18, 6:00 p.m. parish hall
Join our Community of Hope lay chaplains for an informative evening with Lisa Levy. In her book Just Hospitality, the late theologian Letty Russell wrote, "I understand hospitality as the practice of God’s welcome, embodied in our actions as we reach across difference to participate with God in bringing justice and healing to our world in crisis." For people experiencing homelessness, what does "God’s welcome" look like? How do we respond to the spiritual needs of people who dwell in perpetual crisis? How might we embody a space of radical hospitality for those who exist on the margins? Is healing possible, and what does healing mean in this context? We will discuss what a Christian pastoral response to people experiencing homelessness might be.
