    Donald's guest is Josh Spring, Executive Director, Cincinnati Homeless Coalition

    Josh graduated from the College of Social Work at Xavier University.  Josh is a Licensed Social Worker.  Previously, Josh was the Social Worker for Tenants of Over-the-Rhine Community Housing’s 250 units of affordable housing.   Josh noticed that repeatedly Tenants or those that wanted to be Tenants were experiencing the same repeated issues.  This built a desire to organize systematic efforts to take on the root causes of homelessness, leading Josh to the Coalition.

    Josh began learning about homelessness from those who were homeless; while working in the transitional housing building of Tender Mercies, an agency providing affordable housing for people who have been homeless with mental illness.

    A Happy Ending

    in Christianity

    Today I want to talk to you about a happy ending. We all like a good ending, and a happy ending makes for a good ending. We read books to get to the ending, we watch movies to see how it ends. I can endure a slow start or even a bad start to a movie or book if it picks up and has a good ending. We can't even begin to count how many children's books end with the line “and they lived happily ever after.” It's just something in our nature that wants to see things work in a good way for good people.
