Two Coins is one the most fun projects I’ve been able to work on in the past year. It has been a delight to collaborate with Angela Tawfik, Chris Kuo & Kristi Sturgill to tell AMAZING stories of people from around the world who have overcome poverty.
This is a podcast where John Mark Comer and Mark Sayers talk about whatever Mark Sayers has been thinking about lately, and it’s amazing. They explore characteristics of “pre-Christian, Christian and post-Christian societies” and talk about how secularization leads people to embrace the “political religions”.
Solidarity consists of learning from the poor by seeing their abundance, standing with the poor by fighting for justice and sacrificing for the poor by giving to charity. This virtue is biblical, essential and part of the abundant life.
“If our security is totally in God, then we are free to ask for money. Only when we are free from money can we ask freely for others to give it. This is the conversion to which fundraising as ministry calls us.”
“Christians have been set free to enjoy working. If we begin to work as if we were serving the Lord, we will be freed from both overwork and underwork. Neither the prospect of money and acclaim, nor the lack of it, will be our controlling consideration.”
