when it all turns on

[it's not that people don't care about the poor, it's that they don't know the poor - s claiborne]

a questions: It can be difficult to understand the plight of the powerless when we have so much, what can leaders do to help connect their communities with the heart of God for those suffering right now?

the most powerful thing we've seen is when people make a friend from outside their bubble—through a an afterchool art program, a tutoring program, a job skills training class, refugee adoption, when "the poor" has a name and a face and personality for you, everything changes.
