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 For “Who Am I?”
On this week’s program I Interview Michael Dippy, Executive Director of IDignity, based in Orlando, Florida, “Restoring Dignity and Hope By Providing Identification.”
Program Opening: “Let me ask you a question. Do you know who you are? And can you prove it? For thousands of homeless people all across our country, and right here in Spokane, proving who they are is nearly impossible. My guess would be that most of us have never had a problem proving who we are. In fact, you and I probably have multiple forms of legal identification: a certified copy of your birth certificate; a Social Security Card; a State Driver’s License; even a U.S. Passport. I’ve got all four of those and many of you do, too. We can easily prove to anyone who needs to know exactly who we are: Banks and financial institutions, schools, employers, government agencies. But for just a moment imagine trying to do normal everyday things without any ID.”
Next Week’s Program
On next week’s program/podcast I will be interviewing Mark Terrell, Director of Cup of Cool Water as we discuss the status of homeless teens on the streets of Spokane. Be sure to join us!
