Tiny Home Makes Its First Public Appearance!

Posted on

Last weekend, thousands of youth from around the country came to Minneapolis for the Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod conference. 1,200 of them participated in an interactive experience on homelessness, including a visit to the tiny house prototype built by Woodland volunteers in collaboration with the nonprofit, Settled.

Visitors were asked questions to provoke new ways of thinking about homelessness. Instead of sitting at the stoplight, hoping for the light to turn green quickly, how can we engage our neighbors? How can the church be the answer to the problems of homelessness?

After one presentation a youth leader from New York said, “I had thought about this, but I had never really considered it.”

Gabrielle Clowdus, the speaker from Settled, said that she saw this weekend as planting hundreds of tiny seeds to change the way churches across the nation think about homelessness.

    This mission fits very closely with the desire of my heart. I currently work inpatient psychiatry as an Occupational Therapist and our core belief is that people are healthier when engaged in meaningful work or activity. All of these marginalized people want to work and make a difference but we treat them like they have nothing to offer. I would love to train and supervise and organize and support homeless people making tiny houses for other homeless people. Please let me know how I can get involved.

"I've been a WH podrishioner for several years now and I can't tell you how much it has changed my life. I came across these podcasts at a time when I was in an extremely unhealthy/abusive situation, and these teachings were immensely influential to me maintaining my faith and sanity. THANK YOU for showing me what a Jesus-looking God is like and what it means to follow Him. Many, many blessings to all of you!"
