Episode Summary

I met Troy in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. He has been homeless on and off for twenty five years, which he says is the result of being abused as a child. Troy has a strong faith in Jesus. He believes it's through that belief that he receives help and support. Troy wants us to know that homelessness is a symptom of mental illness and trauma caused by the challenges of life. Troy is a good man. He just needs a chance and some real hope. Faith based organizations need to be careful to teach more than Jesus. Often our homeless friends will refuse needed services saying "Jesus will provide all our needs". Thing is, Jesus works through people. We need to be real with people and not present ideals, although well meaning, that could cause harm and keep people on the streets. I am not a bible expert or a theologian but I am sure Jesus wants no one to be homeless! // more stories // follow // follow
