Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the road is easy that leads to destruction, and there are many who take it. For the gate is narrow and the road is hard that leads to life, and there are few who find it.” – Matthew 7:13-14

Moleskin: A big thank you to the men of Oak Park and Chicago for embracing YHC and family this past month. Transitioning to a new community is hard, but knowing that there is a community of men in a new place ready to embrace someone new has been tremendous. Today YHC brought a little of the past five years into this Q and looks forward to continuing to push all of the pax to get better every day.
