In which I look at ten years at a crisis pregnancy center (with extra links!)

First, my new article:

For the past 10 years I’ve volunteered at the Capitol Hill Pregnancy Center, a pro-life Christian ministry in the troubled heart of Washington, D.C. Over this decade of listening to women in crisis, talking with them, helping them find the resources they need, praying with them, hugging them, sometimes inviting them into my home when they had no safe place to go, I’ve seen shifts in the culture of poor D.C. women. My own perspective has shifted as well. I wrote about my early experiences for The Weekly Standard in 2003, after a year at the center; here is how I see the work today.


Here’s a post I wrote about class and friendship, which almost got integrated into the piece. And don’t miss Rod Dreher’s story at the end of his post here.
