A discussion of a spiritual approach to philanthropy with Ryan McDonald & Julie Fahnstock of the Boston Faith & Justice Network.
I recorded this show back in the beginning of the year and it was fantastic! It’s a discussion on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict with two Boston based peace activists, John Roberts and Martin Federman. Click the link and check it out!
This is what I’m talking about…
I’m wondering if it will be. At the very least someone better teach Ryan about subsidiarity and the wealth gap.
This will never be a civilized country until we expend more money for books than we do for chewing gum
As a follow up on the Recipe for Change talk a few weeks back, the Coalition of Immokalee Workers are urging Chipotle to sign the Fair Food Agreement. They are currently refusing to do so. I’ve attached the link to the petition to add your name to it. Please show solidarity with the Farmworkers of Immokalee.
Tonight we talk with Seth Wispelwey of International Justice Mission and the organizer of Recipe for Change. We talk about modern day slavery in the tomato picking industry and what you can do to help alleviate it. Click on the websites below. for more information.
The UN observer says it’s only a matter of time before Assad’s government falls. While that may be true, the civilians that haven’t already fled country could be easily massacred by pro-government forces/population and Turkey has already said it would not tolerate a Kurdish state in Syria’s northern portions. Fighting continues in Aleppo. Needless to say it’s a scary time.
“O God, forgive our rich nation where small babies die of cold quite legally.
O God, forgive our rich nation where small children suffer from hunger quite legally.
O God, forgive our rich nation where toddlers and school children die from guns sold quite legally.
O God, forgive our rich nation that lets children be the poorest group of citizens quite legally.
O God, forgive our rich nation that lets the rich continue to get more at the expense of the poor quite legally.
O God, forgive our rich nation which thinks security rests in missiles rather than in mothers, and in bombs rather than in babies.
O God, forgive our rich nation for not giving You sufficient thanks by giving to others their daily bread.
O God, help us never to confuse what is quite legal with what is just and right in Your sight.”
—Marian Wright Edelman
“Whenever evil befalls us, we ought to ask ourselves, after the first suffering, how can we turn it into good? So shall we take occasion, from one bitter root, to raise perhaps many flowers.” –Leigh Hunt.
