Notable quotes from Pastor Ray’s message…
“The God of the Bible is the God who calls people to pilgrimage and movement – not the status quo. He is the God who requires societies to seek justice, not the comfort of the privileged. He is the God who identifies with the poor, exploited and downtrodden.”  (David Shenk)
“Many of us in the Western church have insulated and isolated ourselves from the massive material poverty that surrounds us in the world. We have filled our lives and our churches with more comforts for us, all the while turning a blind eye and a deaf ear to abject poverty in others.” (Platt)
“Real, authentic sustainable care for the poor will only happen when any low-grade sense of guilt is conquered by a high grade sense of the gospel.” (Platt)
“The entire concept of saving money so that we can live a life of ease and self- indulgence has no biblical foundation.” (Platt)
“If our charitable giving does not pinch or hamper us, I should say it is too small. There ought to be things we should like to do and cannot do because our charitable giving excludes them.” (CS Lewis)
