Davisville, 5/4/15: Crossing lines to pursue the common good in Davis

Bill Habicht is the associate pastor of Davis Community Church. He has also worked on a series of projects that cross lines between social activism and business innovation, such as Mosaic Tea & Coffee and Pollinate Davis, and more could be coming--such as a pop-up store where someone could test a business idea for two months. "If they show success," he says, "they move into their own space." Today's subjects include helping the homeless get shelter, the challenges of "working as a Christian in a fairly secular town," and breaking out of silos.
