    • 2007, Michelle Borquez, God Crazy:
      One of the most influential acts of servanthood my parents displayed would be to invite strangers, or what I would call "oddlings," to our house for a meal or to stay for a while. And these oddlings were people who were the most down and out — the broken, the depressed, the dirty, the lonely, the lost — and they all seemed to enter our house under a cloud of hopelessness.
