the million dollar cross versus hungry kids…which would you support?

I work with a program called The Hope Project (www.hopeproject.org). We are struggling financially. For around $5,500 a month we are employing 35 teachers and staff and educating 1,000 kids. But we are only bringing in around $3,500 a month. And for a few more thousand a month we could even do more – we could feed these kids one meal a day…for most of these kids that would be a 100% increase in their number of daily meals. And these Christians spent 1 million dollars on a cross. These kinds of things make me want to cry with frustration.

    Seriously. I’ve often felt the same way about how millions and millions of dollars are pumped into political campaigns of one sort or another – imagine the lives that could be saved and improved!

    This is one of my many struggles with organized religion and churches. I don’t remember Jesus building one building or chapel.
