February 6, 2018 – Faith & Community: Housing, Education, Jobs
with Bishop Allen T.D. Wiggins
Season 11, Episode 6
Holistic neighborhood revitalization, is that the same as community transformation? And if so, what does all that mean? On this installment of Friends Talking Faith with The Three Wise Guys we’ll discuss faith, community transformation, and whether or not it’s a calling for the faith community. In communities which are ravaged by the effects of poverty, where do we find the greatest hope? Some faith communities are insulated and isolated from the needs of the larger community; they claim their primary calling is simply to nurture the souls of those who are part of their congregation and care for them. Other faith communities believe it is their primary mission to reach out to those in need. Our guest today will talk about why he believes reaching out is the only option, and how his congregation has been a leader in that, particularly in the struggle to help people rise out of poverty. Our guest is a community transformer, our conversation with Bishop Allen T.D. Wiggins – that’s coming up on this episode of Friends Talking Faith.
