What’s NOW with SLW
The Second Half of Tony and Shane Uncut has begun — Tony Campolo & Shane Claiborne’s complete dialog on simpler living and global justice, in eight parts. To LISTEN, click the player at the top or the bottom of the Show Notes, or visit the Episode Index. NOTE: You can listen to each episode as it is released the 1st and 15th of the month, May-Aug. Or listen to several or all episodes at Preview/Back-up. The topics are different for each episode.
TOPICS #5: Beyond Borders group urged to buy supplies and pay workers, not build for the Haitians; instead, spend time with them, which is unsettling, humbling and ultimately gratifying. St. Francis — jester of God — knew how to party, invented the marionette. The poor are sacramental, meet Jesus in them, here or overseas. Matt. 25 is about interactions (interruptions), not charity. Charity insulates us; church becomes a broker, not a community. Positive examples: hugging a bum, ice cream in Calcutta — it’s too good to keep to myself!
