This Christmas season should engender compassion for the homeless

Derek Miller writes that when “Jesus said the poor would always be among  us, it was an invitation to help, not an excuse to ignore.” There are many ways to serve, he reminds us, from financial donations to volunteering our time to choosing kindness. There are also many people working with Utahns experiencing homelessness who deserve our thanks, people who don’t turn away, but who are moved to action.

“There are good people doing hard work today to help those who are living without shelter tonight. Warm thanks to those providing real kindness in the form of real help for real change.”
