My wife Liz and I attended a Bible Study at the Catholic Worker house in Cleveland. We’ve been studying the book: Sabbath Economics: Household Practices. Liz and I were asked to summarize the chapter on Solidarity. In part of this chapter, author Matthew Colwell writes: “…solidarity implies an alignment of ones location, life, vision and hope with that of the poor and marginalized.” I said as an example of this, several years ago students at Bluffton College built a “tent city” and slept out in the March cold in “solidarity” with people in Afghanistan being displaced to refugee camps when the U.S. started bombing that country. These students not only entered into some of these refugees’ “location,” but they also raised money for a Habitat for Humanity home to be built in Afghanistan. (A Habitat home there costs $2,000.) Some Bluffton communtiy members, including our family, put up tents on campus in solidarity with the students. And our daughter Sarah, then six-years-old, told a reporter from the Lima News that we were lucky to have a tent — because she had just seen people sleeping in cardboard boxes in Juarez, Mexico, during a “Border Tour” we’d just completed.
