The past week I wrote two blog post detailing my journey, this past year, to greater social justice involvement. (Click here for Part 1 and Part 2.) Craig Walter, the Missions Pastor at Christ Community Church, does a lot to help educate and empower people when it comes to social justice, poverty and more. With the current message series, Money Matters, touching on the topic of generosity and how it relates to poverty, I thought it would be good to sit down and talk with Craig.
Topics we discussed are:
- The concept of place as fate, poverty, and how it relates to being generous.
- What can people do to understand poverty better?
- Breaking down stereotypes, and educating people, so they can get involved in their community.
- Scriptures that address generosity as it relates to poverty.
- Ways you can get involved.
