Check out these two compelling posts on American poverty: “The Line, the 47%, and the Food Stamp Professor” by Soong-Chan Rah and “How Can We Love and Serve the Poor if We Don’t Even Know the Poor” by Eugene Cho. Each focuses on how the poor are often dehumanized and how “The Line” is a powerful film that can open our eyes to the humanity of those struggling with poverty.

I look forward to reading your book. I was a part of the Sojourner Community from 1976-1989. I am on your cover…. That is me behind Karen Grandberg-Michaelson with my hand on my forehead. Today I am a United Methodist Minister and pastor of Rising Hope Mission Church. A small congregation in a low-income section of Fairfax County, VA. Two-thirds of my congregations has been homeless and I am still fighting the good cause and bugging the local politicians.
