Join me for 16th Annual Urban Ministries Prayer Breakfast


Join us on March 3 for CitySquare's 16th Annual Urban Ministries Prayer Breakfast with keynote speaker World Food Prize laureate David Beckmann, one of the foremost U.S. advocates for hungry and poor people. He has been president of Bread for the World since 1991, leading large-scale and successful campaigns to strengthen U.S. political commitment to overcome hunger and poverty in the U.S. and globally.


Beckmann is also president of Bread for the World Institute, which provides policy analysis on hunger and strategies to end it. He founded and serves as president of the Alliance to End Hunger, which engages diverse U.S. institutions—Muslim and Jewish groups, corporations, unions, and universities—in building the political will to end hunger. He is also the author of the recently released book, Exodus from Hunger.

Bread for the World is a collective Christian voice urging our nation's decision makers to end hunger at home and abroad. Bread for the World members meet with and write personal letters and emails to their members of Congress. It is one of the largest organizations in the world dedicated to building the political will to end hunger.

BREAD for the World is another left wing Liberation Theology organization, whose goal is income redistribution and of course the great phrase "SOCIAL JUSTICE".

Thanks, Anon, that was helpful. (And in case you didn't recognixe it, that was sarcasm.)

If such extreme views as wanting people to have enough food to eat is Liberation Theology, and not wanting people to starve is Social Justice, then count me in!

"I was hungry and you gave me something to eat ..." You're right. That's pretty radical theology.

There are plenty of charitable food providing organizations that are not interwoven with a lefty socialist cause. Organizations such as Bread pervert the charitable mainstream with their ideology.

For whatever reason Larry has opened the comments section to those who do not feel comfortable posting a real identity. I have no problem with this, but could you please stick to real issues and not a collection of snide remarks directed to others? I love the free flowing exchange of ideas, but get very little out of a contest to see who can be the best at making another person look like a fool. Deal with issues and not with the character of people when possible.
