Summary

Description

In this episode of The Redemptive Edge, Sara Miller shares her story of being welcomed into her neighborhood, and her team’s work to build a venture that aims to create generational change for its neighbors within a six-block radius.

Sara moved to New York City for college, and in a period of deep spiritual conviction about God’s care for the poor, asked herself the question: “If Jesus lived in New York City today, where would he live?”

Her answer took her to the South Bronx, where she was warmly welcomed into the life of the neighborhood. Over time, her informal after-school program grew into the innovative nonprofit A House on Beekman, which works with young people in the neighborhood from birth to their entry into a career.

Her story is one of proximity, risk, and the joy that comes from shared sacrifice.
