Second Week: July 13 – Al and Andi Tauber

Talk Title: Stories from the Streets: Going Home

Talk Description:

Emmaus Ministries works with men involved in survival prostitution on the streets of Chicago. Stories from the Streets: Going Home was created by spending time with these men, listening to their stories, and interviewing them, then crafting their words and experiences into monologues, stories, and songs.

The staff and volunteers of Emmaus are blessed and privileged to hear stories few others hear, from men who are typically misunderstood, if they are noticed at all. Their stories may be so different than ours, but they nevertheless underscore our common humanity and reveal surprising glimpses of God’s mercy.

tot week 2Bio:

Al and Andi Tauber have been with Emmaus Ministries since 1999 and 2004, respectively. In addition to the blessing of working at Emmaus, Andi teaches piano, and Al teaches guitar, bass, and drums. They are both involved in the music group at Living Water Community Church, and they perform music at coffeehouses, festivals, and on back porches under the name andi and i. Both Al and Andi love riding their bikes, and succumb too frequently to the siren song of the spinach and garlic pan pizza.
