    The divorce rate article was a pretty interesting read… though it confirmed what I expected: divorce rates are down because people are getting better at making their marriages work; people just aren’t getting married, period. From the article:

    “The number of couples who live together without marrying has increased tenfold since 1960; the marriage rate has dropped by nearly 30 percent in past 25 years; and Americans are waiting about five years longer to marry than they did in 1970.”

    One wonders at what the social ramifications will (continue to) be.

    Christianity off-off broadway

    Reading this NYT article about 2 off-off broadway plays, Faith Confronted, and Defended, Downtown, makes me all the more want to be an urbanite in The City, as cruel a place as it is for the faithful, once in a while it does make room for an honest loo…

    Eugene — Yes, Mr. $67 million pants guy gets the gas face! Every time I thought of that guy I would get so worked up about all the things that are wrong with our culture today… but just knowing that he has received a much-deserved gas face puts things back into perspective for me 🙂

    At the risk of exposing my totally lowbrow TV-viewing tendencies, did you happen to watch “The (White) Rapper Show” hosted by MC Serch? If not, then I totally didn’t either 😉

    Gar: yes, it will be very interesting. there are various countries around the world [particularly europe and japan] that are having issues because of the reasons you mentioned. specifically, the decrease of children has been alarming for some of these nations.

    Daniel: i don’t remember the show but I’m sure Gar does. but i do remember mc serch and i do remember the song, ‘gas face.’

    ‘gas face’ is classic… 😉

    For those not in the know:

    haha.

One Day’s Wages

At times, we have to say ‘NO’ to good things to say ‘YES’ to the most important things.

We can't do it all.
Pray and choose wisely.
Then invest deeply. May our compassion not just be limited to the West or to those that look like us. Lifting up the people of Iraq, Iran, and Kurdistan in prayer after the 7.3 earthquake - including the many new friends I met on a recent trip to Iraq.

The death toll rises to over 400 and over 7,000 injured in multiple cities and hundreds of villages along the Western border with Iraq.

Lord, in your mercy... We are reminded again and again...that we are Resurrection People living in a Dark Friday world.

It's been a tough, emotional, and painful week - especially as we lament the horrible tragedy of the church shootings at Sutherland Springs. In the midst of this lament, I've been carried by the hope, beauty, and promise of our baptisms last Sunday and the raw and honest testimonies of God's mercy, love, and grace.

Indeed, God is not yet done. May we take heart for Christ has overcome the world. "Without genuine relationships with the poor, we rob them of their dignity and they become mere projects. And God did not intend for anyone to become our projects." Grateful this quote from my book, Overrated, is resonating with so many folks - individuals and  NGOs. / design by @preemptivelove .
May we keep working 
on ourselves 
even as we seek 
to change the world. 
To be about the latter 
without the former 
is the great temptation 
of our times. Minhee and I are filled with gratitude as we reflect on the @onedayswages gala last night. So many friends and guests came to support our work...and of course, our scrappy staff, interns, and board. In 8 years, we've impacted 561,000 people around the world that are living in extreme poverty and vulnerable situations. This year, we are expecting to have our largest investment of grants at $1.3 million! Over the next couple weeks, I'm going to share some of those stories of impact.

But we need your help to keep growing this work. Because our pledge is for 100% of all donations to go directly to our partnerships, we're asking folks from around the world to consider becoming one of core supporters by simply pledging $25/month to support our operations. Go to give.onedayswages.org for more info.
