new ThinkChristian post up

I meant to mention this yesterday but forgot somehow. I’ve got another ThinkChristian post up.

http://thinkchristian.net/thanksgiving-on-food-stamps

Officially, it’s about the Food Stamp challenge I do this year, where you only buy food you could afford if you had to rely on food stamps. But it ended up being more about how I, as a middle-class white Protestant, have struggled to relate to and understand people with a much lower income than mine, including the homeless. It’s about the importance of raising your consciousness and realizing the limitations of your experience, and how that affects the ways we view others. At least, as much as I can communicate in 750 words. :-)

No Tolkien, unfortunately, but it is from my heart. Do give it a read if you have the time. I’d love your comments, either there or here.
