From Pastor Mike:
“What is poverty? Not just locally, but in terms of our world. The globalrichlist gives a clear sense of what global poverty looks like. If you earn $50,000 Canadian a year the list will tell you that
You are in the top 3.75% richest people in the world. There are 5,774,782,608 people poorer than you.
If the hermeneutic of the emergent church is mission, then its praxis must be centered around welcoming and serving the poor – not just the poor in spirit [how easily we rationalize this] but the economically poor.”
