Paul Luikart's Blog

I miss the front lines. Much of my job now involves fundraising and organizational development. I know it's what I'm supposed to do to resource the front line staff who are more qualified to minister directly to the people we serve than I will ever be. I enjoy Paul Luikart's blog. It reminds me of the joys and disappointments of working every day directly with homeless men and women. Paul is our housing coordinator at Breakthrough. Check out his August 28 post about the reality of death among the homeless. Here he is in a comedy sketch...

Hey Arloa,
You're definitely closer to the front lines than most of us.
You live in the 'hood, you lead and inspire the tireless team at Breakthrough. You rock!

Arloa,

I feel your comment about missing the front lines. I am a career Youth Pastor, and I rarely hang with High School kids anymore - but I still have a GRIP of College kids in my life!

It would be great for you to find ways to speak to young women a couple of times a year, maybe at a week long camp or a weekend outreach...
