Member Johanna Kistner's Poem on Inner City Work at SCPS AGM

Where angels fear to tread

Go, go where angels fear to tread
Because people are living there

Go where the pain is unspeakable
Go where the hopelessness is unbearable
Go to the last outposts where the hunger
For food and justice is an
Ever-present reality
Devouring the soul

Go to be overwhelmed,
Go to weep
For a beloved continent

Go and take with you your hearts
Your hands, your courage, your wisdom
Your imperfections and your love

Go, go where angels fear to tread
Because people are living there

Johanna Kistner
