Concordia University's 2013-14 Convocation Series continues with a presentation from Julia Dinsmore, author of My Name is Child of God...Not "Those People": A First Person Look at Poverty.
Julia Dinsmore personally experienced and survived homelessness. Her book, My Name is Child of God … Not “Those People”: A First Person Look at Poverty tells her story through various forms of writing. It speaks of poverty, hunger, and homelessness as a symptom of spiritual imbalance in this world. Using story, song, poetry, and humor she will expand and inform, inspire and hopefully transform our thinking and behaviors with, about, for, and among ‘the least of these.’ Watch and listen to her poem My Name is Not “Those People” narrated by Danny Glover.
