The Church has two responsibilities to the world: evangelism and social action. I don’t view these as “either/or” but “both/and.” They go hand-in-glove. The neglect of either is unacceptable.
This video below is about a new ministry within the Orthodox Church in North America (of which I am a part) to serve the poorest of the poor. Even if you are not Orthodox, I think you will be blessed by the incarnational theology that undergirds this important ministry. If you are moved by this, please consider making a donation on the FOCUS web site.
