Hoping to raise the profile of homelessness (Reposting with new link)

Catholic Charities to make poverty and homelessness an issue at the Republican Convention in St. Paul.

Just as a coincidence, I found a link to the blog called Under the Overpasses, which is written by the director of a homeless shelter, city not known. He says in the header, "I have been told that the most important thing in real estate is "location, location, location." Most of the people I encounter under the overpasses would heartily agree because location determines point of view. The world looks very different from under here. It is both beauty and abyss, comedy and tragedy. Park yourself here for a few minutes. Tune out the traffic and let's watch the world go by." Check it out!


  1. The Presiding Bishop of the ELCA sent a letter to both candidates lifting up those concerns among others.

  2. Thank you for the link to my blog. I am honored and I am also refreshed by your compassion for those on the outside edges of society! Peace, UTO


And what do you think?
