TRIBUTE TO FRAN & Paul HIEBERT
AbstractOne of the first things that struck me about the Hieberts was their choice of their home church – they belonged to a small Mennonite Brethren Church in East LA, where the pastor was an ex-gang member, and ex-convict. They both were so like Jesus in how they embraced those on the margins of society, placing them in the center of their hearts. My first quarter, in an Urban Anthropology class, Paul told us of spending his Saturday, repairing the floor of this little church. They were greatly loved there, and also greatly loved the congregation.
