-"Our country spends more money on the poor than ever before in history and yet we have more people who are poor and homeless than ever before in our history, social justice doesn't work."-
You could see the emotion in my friend's face as he looked across the table, expecting that this statement would bring the conclusion of our discussion. After all, how can you argue with facts, right? Unfortunately for him, this was not the first time I had encountered this argument. After six years of street ministry I have plenty of practice answering similar questions of why this program or that program has not "fixed" the problem of poverty, hunger, or homelessness.

Whether you are a follower of my previous blog or a new reader, welcome to His Urban Presence. I am looking forward to getting back to blogging after more than a year off and am really excited about what God is doing with myself, my family, and the ministries he has entrusted to us here in Colorado Springs. You will find information about how we are serving, posts about how you can become involved in serving, and ideas about better reaching those on society's margins.
