THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH

Praying before dinner yesterday are, clockwise from lower left, David Rowe, Kelly Young, Ashley Laughlin, Greg Lanham, Brian Gillis, Heather Thompson-Gillis and Mary Bumpus. Young, Laughlin, Lanham and Bumpus live in the house.
The seven people in their 20s share everything in their Franklinton home: bedrooms, meals, bills and the mortgage. They even share duties caring for the chickens they raise in their backyard.
All are college-educated and capable of finding good-paying jobs and housing in safer parts of town.
Instead, they choose to live in a low-income neighborhood and dedicate their energy to helping the people who don't live there by choice.
They take exception to the word "help," though. They say they simply love their neighbors, the way Jesus did.
