Our Lenten authors today, Beth Miller Kraybill and Ken Kraybill, are Mennonites from Seattle, WA. I had the privilege of studying with Beth at the Associated Mennonite Biblical Seminary (AMBS) in Elkhart, IN. At a school forum, Ken gave a presentation that addressed homelessness from both a local and national perspective. The story of how their home church gradually reached out to those on the streets really spoke to me, so I invited them to share their experience as part of this series on caring for others—the heart of peace and justice. I hope you will receive their story warmly.
