“Matthew Desmond Talks About the Church’s Response to Housing Instability,” an interview with the Pulitzer winning author of Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City, by Betsy Shirley from Sojourners (June 2017).  Desmond says, “What can people who have experienced eviction teach the church? I think that they can teach about how much human potential and creativity we squander.”    A related biblical theme: “And the king will answer them, ‘Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me’” (Matthew 25:40). http://bit.ly/2hlQF7t
