“Who Is My Neighbour?” – Part 2

Exploring the connections between elite education, urban poverty, and Christian faith

Thursday, October 25, 2012
Chaplain’s office, Wycliffe College (basement)

6:00 – Dinner
7:00 (or so) – Something After Dinner – discussion, etc.
====================================

Dear Friends,
Two weeks ago the GCF community talked about the reasons for becoming more engaged with the issue of urban poverty – the nature of the need, the biblical teachings about serving the poor, the barriers we face as we strive to live faithfully in the midst of our busy lives.  At GCF this week we are continuing and deepening this conversation about the connections between an elite education, urban poverty and Christian faith.

We will be asking questions like:
– How, in light of our demanding jobs and studies, can we live faithfully and respond to the call of the poor all around us?
– How do we as individuals with differing gifts and talents fit into the corporate Christian call to serve the poor?
– How would deep engagement with these questions and the issue of urban poverty reshape our own priorities and lifestyles?

GCF is hoping to provide a safe and thoughtful environment to hold an interactive discussion on these questions and more. Once again, our goal is to ask significant questions about how we act out our faith, and to do it in ways that are life-giving (for us and others) rather than guilt-inducing.

Come join us!  All are welcome!

Marcia
