Dear World Release
Sample Blog Post
What happens when you see the Homeless?
It's a moment of tension each of us have felt.
You are walking down the street. You see a homeless person. And you mentally
freeze. A million thoughts seem to swirl in your mind... "What should I do? Should
I do anything? Should I look at them? Give them money? Smile? Say hello?"
As you approach the homeless, you become more and more uncomfortable, and
the tension within increases.
What' happens next?
In 2008, a team of young artists spent two months in Portland, Oregon, to find the
answer to this question.
What resulted is a beautiful, full color book called Dear World.
Full of stories, examples, thoughts, inspirations, and challenges of how the body
of Christ can begin to live as Jesus lived, and reach out to those in our very own
communities, Dear World contains excerpts of letters written by the street
community to the world. Readers will meet Miranda - a former meth addict who
has found healing and restoration. They will meet Jeremiah, a young man who,
like many Americans, misjudged the economic stability and lost it all. Their
stories are paired with their portraits, and readers are given an eye-opening view
of what life is really like on the street - and how we can help people stay off it.
