Reflecting on the themes of sleep, faith and safety in Psalm 4, Emerging Leader Kim Druziako shares her own stories of survival as she first moved to the Bay Area. With little resources, she finds herself in a warehouse community of other poor queer folks who help each other make ends meet. After her community is evicted from the warehouse space and with no permanent place to live and no employment, she turns to sex work to survive. Even with those challenges, she finds God’s support in the network of community and calls the church to be that in the world.
