Reflection on the conditions that foster the existence of Skid Rows in Canada.
Abstract: This is the outline of the application of a Model for Theological Reflections. It focuses on the problem of conditions that foster the existence of Skid Rows in Canadian cities. The document tests some impacts of the problem, power and principalities behind the problem, reflects in the light of a movement from sin and bondage to grace and freedom under the headings of sources of enslavement, judgement (destructive suffering and demonic forces), discernment, forgiveness (creative suffering, focus of God's action, who needs forgiving?) and sources of empowerment. A plan of action is developed.
