Jul 5th – Too Generous

Helping the Poor – That’s what we say we’re doing, but is our generosity hurting those we want to help? Americans like to give and our charitable organizations are some of the largest in the world. Charity may feel good to the donor…but does our giving really help the poor through long-term transformation? Joining Kathy in The Sitting Room is Bob Lupton. He argues that these programs inadvertently establish dependency and turn people into beggars. We’ll also talk with Mike Yankowski, who actually chose to live under a bridge for a year to learn what poverty really feels like.
