Re: Reading the Economy

The Christian measure of our economy's performance must not only account for how the least are faring in this country; it must consider economic distribution worldwide. According to a report in the Christian Science Monitor yesterday, hunger and poverty are worsening across Africa. An estimated 35% of Africa's population - 200 million people - are malnourished. We cannot, in good conscience, say we are in "good times" economically.

Amen, we cannot simply be nationalists but must strive to be internationalists as Xtns.

I'm back from Ukraine where I was interviewing Xtns about how the Orange Revolution changed them in their views about politics and Xty.

It was a good experience. We have a lot to gain from learning from Xtns in the 2/3rds world.
