I want to give a shout out to the youth group from First Lutheran Church of St. Joseph (ELCA) along with their minister Roger Lenander. They spent last Sunday night and Monday morning at Juda House and St. Joseph Haven--who house homeless men. the youth played games, watched movies and talked with the men. They got up the next morning and made them a pancake breakfast.
What a way for the youth to learn that these men are not problems to be solved or ignored but people to be respected and loved.
Read the article about it in Tuesday's News-Press, complete with video of Roger Lenander talking about the meaning of the overnight event.
