Description

This presentation is an invitation to join a new movement of God's Spirit that begins inside each of us and extends into a broken world. It is an invitation to listen to stories to inspire and provoke us as we seek to live out our call as people of faith in social work. This message is meant to comfort the disturbed, and disturb the comfortable. It sketches out a vision of "ordinary" Christians in social work ready to change the world with little but radical acts of love.

He is married to Katie Jo, a North Carolina girl who also fell in love with the city (and with Shane). They were wed in St. Edwards church, the formerly abandoned cathedral into which homeless families relocated in 1995, launching the beginning of the Simple Way community and a new phase of faith-based justice making. where everything started back in 1995.
