"Their Blood is on Our Hands" - Rev. Meeks

I encourage you to read the Opinion article titled, Their blood is on our hands, posted by Rev. James Meeks, in the Chicago Tribune.

Then read these blog articles I've written in the past responding to the messages of Rev./State Senator Meeks. See here, and here.

I met with a pastor at Salem Baptist Church last spring and provided an introduction to the T/MC and our map strategy. I've posted other articles on this blog about what faith leaders might do to support the growth of tutor/mentor programs in the city.

There's a story in the Bible about "many are called, but few are chosen".

The ideas we share can be used by anyone who wants to really build a network of programs that prevent problems before they occur, and help release the potential of kids living in poverty.

If you'd like our help to use these ideas, just call 312-492-9614, or introduce yourself via this forum, Facebook, or some other place where we can meet.
