In this month’s episode of Friends in Formation, Richella, James, and Nate discuss:

  • :40 — Safety in the Kingdom of God: just twaddle?

  • 14:52 — The church’s role in addressing social justice concerns

  • 27:28 — Nurturing a character of peacefulness and gentleness

Mother Teresa’s Example: Richella said, Mother Teresa of Calcutta, who by anyone’s reckoning would be considered a person of real influence, did that by giving of herself and going and serving the poor. Rather than saying, I deserve to be a person of influence, she made herself a person of service. And I wonder if maybe sometimes we have so wanted to be people of influence that we have forgotten that the way of Christ is to be people of service and kindness and mercy and love.“

James referenced African Enterprise.

Quoting Robert Moore-Jumonville: Hurry is greed.”
