Desmond says, "What can people who have experienced eviction teach the church? I think that they can teach about how much human potential and creativity we squander." A related biblical theme: "And the king will answer them, 'Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of tese who are members of my family, you did it to me'" (Matthew 25:40).
