This thesis explores the intersections of faith, service and politics at the Open Door Community in Atlanta. It uses qualitative research methods to ask how the community negotiates tensions between service work and political resistance in its advocacy for homeless people in the city. It concludes that a liberationist theo-politics within a framework of contemporary Catholic worker personalism guides the community towards an analysis that makes space for faith-motivated concepts of service and a robust anti-capitalist political agenda.
