Talking about U.S. report: Racial disparities continue – Race in America – MSNBC.com

This article repeatedly makes the key point about home ownership.  I cannot think of any better gift to mankind than the form of charity practiced by "Home for Humanity".  I would very much like to see this strategy of helping families build homes expanded through churches around the country and the world.  It is a staple of Christian tradition that the Church is a sanctuary for the threatened.  Rather than keep this concept of "church as physical building", we should expand to a concept of "church as the ACT of building".  Every home build through the love of church volunteers is an extension of the Church itself beyond physical boundaries.
