Story | Dec 4, 2014 | 12:29 PMEugene Weekly, "Good God: Churches and the Homeless" The Oregon paper focuses on homelessness in this week's issue, with three different stories profiling efforts to support the homeless in the area. The first story profiles Pastor Dan Bryant's activist efforts to help the homeless in Eugene: "I am convinced that those who blame the homeless for their condition are not so much uncaring as they are unaware—they see what is on the surface and not what is inside," Bryant says. "When we get to know someone, wounds, warts and all, we move from blame to empathy and we see the other as a full human being deserving our respect and care rather than as an object we can scorn and dismiss." The second piece profiles the Vet Camp, a Eugene Safe Spot camp managed by Community Supported Shelters (CSS) that provides tents on elevated platforms to homeless veterans. And the third piece talks to Father Brent Was about what he calls structural sin, "That institutionally our country is set up in a way that is sinful and unjust. The idea that since you are unable to earn money, you are unable to live, have food, have a place to live, etc."
