Bono in Africa...

There is a great free download on iTunes with Bono & Brian Williams (from NBC) in Africa updating Bono's work in fighting extreme poverty and devastating illness. Bono's words about seeing the heart and work of God among the poor continues to strike a chord in my heart. I read the continuous references in the NT about remembering the poor and the widow, but I feel so disconnected from most of that ministry. I hope that as we plant a suburban church in a growing metropolitan area, we continue to grow a heart for pouring resources and energy into helping the least among us. My hope is ultimately in sharing the gospel with every one (the rich and the poor), but I also understand that Jesus couldn't have been clearer when he said:

'I tell you the truth, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.' Matthew 24.45
