“How can we achieve a certain kind of compassion that stands in awe at what the poor have to carry rather than stand in judgement at how they carry it? For the measure of our compassion lies not in our service of those on the margins, but in our willingness to see ourselves in kinship with them—in mutuality.”
Father Gregory Boyle, SJ. Founder of Homeboy Industries, Los Angeles
Kinship. I’m hoping that is exactly what Habitat’s process of homebuilding produces. A product of what we build is a house. The process by which we build makes it a home.
