In the News: Cleaning Up Detroit

I recently came across a news article about 30.000 Lutheran youth who met for a week-long service project cleaning up neighborhoods in Detroit.

What struck me most about this article was not the work the teens did (though that was very admirable), it was the way the teens talked about it. These teens clearly had a learning experience on the project. They learned about the existence of poverty, the dangers of racial discrimination and the importance of love.
