"Common Space" -From the Director
One of the things that I find so special about Gubbio is that the church space is not just 'homeless space.' One could argue that folks who live on the streets should have a space just for themselves. Agreed. And there are places in the Tenderloin that fit that bill. But that is not what Gubbio is about. The church is community space, to be shared by all people. People don't think someone is homeless just because they are entering a church. In need, perhaps, but not any moreso than anyone else who enters a church in search of something. The church building provides a bit of anonymity, so in addition to being a 'sacred space' it is also a 'common space' - a space most often frequented during the week by Catholics or those interested in religious art; but in this case, also by those who need rest or a clean bathroom to use.
And this from Mother Teresa -
"Being unwanted is the worst possible disease. Because for other ailments there are medicines and therapies, but for being unwanted, unless [we] care enough to love [each other] and help [each other] there can be no cure."
Amen to that - let's find a cure!
