Provocative Questions About ‘The Poor.’

  • Do you have friends who are poor? (via Tom Smith, who is quickly becoming a dear friend and prophetic voice towards relational connection with those who are poor in my life).
  • Who told our family to move into this community? (via Andrew Hartman, musing as to why his family moved into Irvine in the first place).
  • Did the poor even have a voice/perspective in my family moving into Irvine?  Why not? (Andrew again, seriously messing with my worldview).
  • Would the poor even have anything valuable to say?  Do I believe they know what they are talking about? (My own hypocrisy exposed this morning in our Transforming Mission discussion group. Ouch.)

Sleep may come hard tonight.
