No Simple Solutions

neighborhood 6

“Poverty is extremely complex. Picture the poor caught in a spider-web of interwoven causes that trap them hopelessly while the marauding spiders of hunger, war, disease, ignorance, injustice, natural disasters, and exploitation prey upon them unrestrained. While there are solutions to poverty- ways to free them from the web- there are no simple solutions.”

Richard Stearns, A Hole in Our Gospel.
