My Church in a Chop Shop
Before joining Sojourners, my wife, Amy, and I spent the last five years doing urban ministry in Boston. We were invited to start a church in an abandoned chop shop by the matriarch and saint of the neighborhood, Ma Siss. The Boston Globe and Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Michael Paulson spent the last three years closely following the birth of the church. I just can't believe how many resources The Globe put into this - a full-time reporter for three years, then a photographer and videographer who visited countless times. I hope you will take some time out of your day to read this four-part series, see the slideshows, and watch the videos of how God's grace is made perfect in our weakness.
May it inspire you to grow deeper in your faith and increase our collective resolve to make poverty history.
