Book Cover: "Sacred Shelter—13 Journeys of Homelessness and Healing", Edited by Susan Celia Greenfield
We are delighted to welcome our friend, Marc Greenburg, executive director of The Interfaith Assembly on Homelessness and Housing, NYC.  He recently helped publish a book titled: Sacred Shelter—13 Journeys of Homelessness and Healing", Edited by Susan Celia Greenfield.
 
“In a metropolis like New York, homelessness can blend into the urban landscape, In Sacred Shelter, New York is the place where a community of resilient, remarkable individuals are yearning for a voice.  Through frank, honest interviews, this book follows the lives of thirteen people who experienced homelessness and graduated from an interfaith life skills empowerment program.  They share traumas from their youth, the devastation of homelessness, and the healing they discovered through community and faith.  By listening to individual stories, we are urged to confront our own woundedness and uncover our desire for human connection, a sacred shelter on the other side of suffering.” 
 

The book features 13 people who each contribute a chapter describing their journey from homelessness to healing and wholeness.  We’re privileged to meet and hear from one of the authors, Sophia Worrell, who will share her powerful story.  Welcome to you both!
