I gave a talk to the Sacred Heart Church Social Justice Committee in Oberlin, Ohio, this last week. Sacred Heart is one of 10 churches in Lorain County to sign onto the Intefaith Hospitality Network to help the homeless. I said our family had signed on too, metaphorically, by moving to the inner city of Cleveland to help. After the talk, a reporter from the Chronicle Telegram asked me more about this. I said we’ve set aside a “Christ Room” (Catholic Worker phrase) in our place to periodically help the homeless. Comical note: While stumping in downtown Oberlin, a woman noted the signage on our van, which in part reads: Back Road to the Whitehouse Tour. “Are you coming to my house?” She asked. Her name: Laura Whitehouse.
