Providing Shelter in the Time of Storm

As the director of the First Church Shelter in Cambridge, Jim Stewart, MDiv '83, is a jack-of-all-trades. His work one particular day involved cubing and marinating beef, cutting and cooking potatoes, ordering supplies, and—as he often does—trying to help guests of the shelter find more stable living situations.

He supervises student workers, fixes things that need fixing, and, perhaps more importantly, serves as a force of stability and caring ally for the 14 men who rely on the shelter every evening for safe dwelling.
