Dr. Soong-Chan Rah :: I’m giving money to the poor, what now?

  • “There’s a vacuum in my spiritual life because I don’t know what it means to worship in the context of poverty and suffering,” says Dr. Soong-Chan Rah, Author and Professor of Church Growth and Evangelism at North Park Theological Seminary. People in the West can mistakenly think that writing a check to a relief organization is all that justice requires of them. While giving money to the poor is definitely part of the way we develop awareness about suffering, we don’t truly begin to see the poor as people until we realize that we need them as much as they need us. “I only have part of the answer in my middle class affluence and comfort.”
