"Poor in Grand Rapids" - a beginning to a series of posts

I am going to begin a series of posts, and perhaps continue it for some time. I'm calling it "Poor in G.R."

For people who do not understand my journey from nearly being an insider of the Republican party in Ottawa County (it was once mine for the taking), to seeing the world through very different eyes (yes, I lean left because of my experiences & deep faith convictions), I want to share some realities of being poor in the city that shadows the suburb in which I grew up.

I've come to deeply love Grand Rapids & the people who live in poverty here. For those of us who grew up in the suburbs, and those who grew up in the city but do not know the realities of being poor in Grand Rapids, let me share. Allow yourself to be transformed towards goodness...
