In November 2009 I posted a blog about some statistics I learned from Rob Bell about poverty around the world, statistics that were very eye-opening to me.  (The post can be found here: http://wayoutwise.blogspot.com/2009/11/how-rich-are-you.html).  Recently, another blog I read by Jonathon Storment, the associate minister at Richland Hills Church of Christ, reminded me of that post and told the story about Christopher and Mission Ice Cream.  I hope you enjoy the post found here: http://stormented.com/2010/05/poor-in-spirit/#more-1155.

Here’s to hoping that we all learn to live below our means and we eradicate poverty around the world in our lifetime.  Here’s to hoping that Christians are truly the hands and feet of Jesus, hands that can take a few dollars from our pocket and make meals to feed thousands upon thousands.

Grace and peace to you.
