Kinship Project: Understanding homelessness and the Christian call to hospitality
The Kinship Project offers a "mission trip at home" experience on Tuesday evenings in March.
Be part of a group to serve together during Room in the Inn on Tuesdays from 5 to 8 p.m. During our time together, Julia Watkins and Kim Moseley will co-facilitate a book study on Barking to the Choir: The Power of Radical Kinship by Gregory Boyle.
Alan Morrow, a past participant, said his experience helped him "to see and understand the homeless, not as a group of people different than me, but as neighbors with shared characteristics, histories, realities and dreams."
In addition to serving together on Tuesday evenings, participants will also share in an opening mini-retreat on Sunday, March 1 from noon to 5 p.m. and a closing dinner in April (TBD), all co-facilitated by Julia and Kim.
As we serve and learn, we'll spend time with guests who stay at Covenant through Room in the Inn.
"It's the quiet conversations I have with these amazing individuals that teach me how to be like Mary," said Lynn Morrow, Alan's wife. "I learn and grow each week while talking to a neighbor who is fleeing an abusive relationship or a family anxious to get into their new apartment... The Kinship Project awoke something in me and continues each week to make me a better person.”
