The Bible call us to respond to God’s love by welcoming the stranger, loving our neighbor as ourselves and protecting the rights of the poor and vulnerable. Threaded through the Bible, the message is clear – human dignity is to be valued and protected.

Join us for a conversation on our biblical roots as they summon us to act for justice today, in 2014, in our city, Washington DC, on a most timely issue: HOMELESSNESS AND AFFORDABLE HOUSING. Is it time for a covenant between the community and a new city administration, a covenant to work together to significantly reduce homelessness in our city during the next 4 years?
