North End Lives
In one of the oldest neighborhoods of Hamilton, Ontario, Mennonites Hugo and Doreen Neufeld lived and worked among residents of the city's North End, at a community center called the Welcome Inn, in much the same way as Quaker Jonathon Dale did in Britain. Here are the stories of how they tried to bridge the class discrimination that stops the comfortable majority from truly understanding and responding effectively to those trapped in poverty.
Hugo Neufeld has done us a tremendous service. In this rich and deeply compassionate book, he sees those who are poor. He takes off his blinders – and ours… This book is the best kind of theology – incarnational theology that is rooted in relationships, encounters, and stories. Neufeld’s theology is about the biblical call for justice and shalom…
