Urban Neighbours of Hope

I met Jon Owen at the Black Stump music festival. Over three days I listened to his stories and was impressed. I laughed a lot, but had the odd tear as well.

Jon & Lisa Owen

Jon and his wife Lisa live in one of Sydney’s most depressed suburbs as part of a community supported by Urban Neighbours of Hope, and try to bring hope to the many people who need it. I deeply admire them and their work, and I don’t think I could do it. I blogged about his book, Muddy Spirituality.

Here is an article from the Sydney Morning Herald about their life. It’s worth reading. (The photo above was taken from the article.)
