Seeing the Homeless Through God's Eyes

"Seeing the homeless through God's eyes" is something we talk about a lot at CSM. On the prayer tours, before helping at soup kitchens and missions, or right before an urban plunge, our CSM staff urge the group members to reach out and get to know a man or woman who is without a home. While at first, students and even adults are intimidated, after a very short while, it is hard to get the groups to say goodbye - walls have come down and friendships have been formed. People connect to people and realize God's love is for all. When I read this article about the increasing violence against the homeless committed by teenagers, I realized CSM's efforts to link youth to the marginalized is more urgent than ever.
