It is a morning just before Christmas. Outside, on the broken streets around Sweetest Heart of Mary Catholic Church, on Russell and Canfield on Detroit's near east side, there are no signs of the season.

And a lone figure, leaning into the chilled wind, slogging past the public housing across the street. Ah, but inside, inside Sweetest Heart of Mary.

Pastor Gabriel Varga takes the pulpit on the Sunday morning before Thanksgiving in a Daytona Beach district called the Bottoms, the prettiest bad neighborhood you'd ever want to see. He is here this day as a visiting preacher to beg, plead and rally the congregation of Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church, so that together they might feed the city's poor and battle the city's mighty.
