KSTP Channel 5: Church hoping tiny homes may help solve big problems

The sign outside Faith Lutheran Church in Forest Lake doesn’t mince words.

“#LoveThyNeighbor – (no exceptions),” it reads.

“Our congregation has a long history of being passionate about homelessness,” said Pastor John Klawiter. “We have a moral obligation to help our neighbor, that this is a calling from God.”

Just this past Sunday, congregation members voted, 155-58, to explore the possibility of bringing 10-12 tiny homes onto church property to shelter the homeless.
