Justice in the Suburbs
Financial poverty exists everywhere, even in the suburbs. However, to see poverty in the suburbs, you have to look for it. Churches can be unfairly criticized for ignoring the poor in their own back yard. However, Heather Larson is the Associate Director of the Global Connections Ministry at Willow Creek Community Church. Through her long commitment to being an advocate for the poor, and recent shifts in the church's priorities - Heather has found herself as the leader of a movement that garners the power of the mega-church to transform the lives of those around them.
