Forest Lake church to build tiny homes for the homeless on its property

Members of Faith Lutheran Church in Washington County are embarking on an unusual project to address homelessness. They've decided to build tiny homes, about a dozen of them, on church property. They're calling the community "Sacred Settlement."

The church’s pastor, John Klawiter, spoke with MPR News host Cathy Wurzer.
