Hope and regeneration on inner-city streets

From the November 1996 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Our Features Editor, Kim Shippey, recently interviewed Rich Williamson and Chris Womack about their ministry on the streets of the "tough" neighborhood of Roxbury, Boston. Rich and Chris are cofounders of God's Posse, a group committed to steering young men away from street hustlers and gangs, and, where necessary, drawing them out of daunting home circumstances in which good role models and mentors are as scarce as nights without emergency sirens.
