Welcome to the weekly podcast of “MY Brother’s Keeper,” inciting a conspiracy of kindness and good deeds. This podcast is your weekly opportunity to get informed and to join the conspiracy. We try to make certain that each podcast features information, lessons, insights and interviews concerning such issues as homelessness, hunger, and people in crisis. Our goal goes beyond talking about issues. We want to combine practical solutions with personal encouragement and offer a challenge to our listeners to get personally involved. While our perspective is that of historic Evangelical Christian faith, and while much of our audience is Christian, the issues we discuss and the solutions we offer go far beyond the walls of any Church or religious organization. We hope you will listen, become part of the conversation, and join our growing conspiracy of kindness and good deeds.
“Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as you can.” – John Wesley
This Week’s “Program Notes”
Program Opening: “According to Jesus in the gospel of Matthew, our good deeds matter . . . . On today’s program I want to share some personal thoughts and reflections on Matthew Chapter 25 and verses 31 through 46. And much of what I’ll share today you will find in Chapter 5 of my book, The Least of These: The Role of Good Deeds In A Jesus Shaped Spirituality, available by clicking on the book image in the right-hand page menu. Today, I want to share a personal ‘Ah ha’ moment I experienced involving my understanding of the last half of Matthew Chapter 25.”
Welcome to my extended treatment of a Bible passage that many people, especially many professing Christians CLAIM to be familiar with. My goal in this program is to offer some fresh perspective and to challenge us to think differently about “the least of these” and our calling to serve them.
Next Week’s Program
On next week’s program/podcast I will be talking with Mollie Dalpae of Mid-City Concerns and Spokane Meals On Wheels about her work with seniors and the issues facing our senior citizens today.
