Wages And Good Deeds

Podcast_Art2Welcome 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: “If Jesus pays wages to those who engage in good deeds, what wage will he pay you? I’m Maurice Smith and I want to talk to you today about wages and good deeds on this week’s edition of “My Brother’s Keeper.”

This week’s radio program and podcast is built around our book The Least of These: The Role of Good Deeds In A Jesus Shaped Spirituality (see it in the right hand menu of this page).  More specifically, I tell a story and address an issue which you’ll find in the “Introduction” to that book: our “good deeds” (or lack thereof) matter to God. Join us to understand why.

Next Week’s Program

Don’t miss next week’s radio program/podcast entitled “How To Start A Homeless Shelter (In One Easy Lesson!)” when I interview Marty and Julie McKinney, founders of Truth Ministries Men’s Shelter in Spokane (who are a “hoot” to be around, whether in the shelter or in the studio!).
