You may have noticed that this episode of Love in a Dangerous Time is a few days late. Well, there’s a good reason for that.

First, let me announce to the world that I am one of those Christians who doesn’t believe in Hell. Sorry if the fiery pit is important to your understanding of the god of love, but I just don’t believe in it as a place or a concept.

Accept…..

I have been in Computer Hell for about a week. I’m taking some extraordinary measures to get this episode up and on the internet, but my usual world of electronics has become absolute Hell. It’s a long story, and I hope it’ll be over soon. I’m sure many of you have had the experience and you know what I’m talking about.

But this episode is now available and I really hope you enjoy it.

No matter where you live, you area probably aware of the deep and scandalous problem of homelessness that plagues the United States and the whole world, for that matter. While we see expensive living spaces and fancy restaurants popping up all over, we also see people couch surfing or panhandling to make the entrance fee of shelters, or camping in the doorways of our towns and cities.

IAHH logoYes. You’re right. It just shouldn’t be. It’s wrong that our societies allow this to happen to people. But what can you do?

My guest today is Marc Greenberg and he is one person has never had a problem thinking up what to do to about homelessness. Mark is the Executive director of the Interfaith Assembly on Homelessness and Housing, here in New York City. As you’ll hear in the interview, this organization has done some amazing things in its thirty-one years. This is mostly based on Marc’s drive and commitment to a better world. Let’s just get into it now. Here’s Marc Greenberg king about homelessness, on Love in a Dangerous Time.
