In case you're wondering about the person I got to interview...


One of my favourite writers recently has been Brian McLaren. He's a refreshing voice in a world in which we've heard too many people talking about a version of Christianity that gets too caught up in a couple of narrow issues and turns a blind eye to some of the bigger problems in the world. I interviewed him for the program we've launched, Fast for Change, in which we're inviting people to spend World Food Day, October 16, fasting and praying about the great imbalances in a world in which over 800 million people are still hungry, and our neighbour to the south is busy bailing out a 700 billion dollar "mistake" made by the filthy rich.

(By the way, it's an audio podcast, not a video. Don't be fooled by the image.)

Weird. I can hear you but I can't see you on the video. It's all black. It could be a problem on my end though. You do have a lovely voice though! :-)

Liz - it's not actually a video, it's an audio podcast. The photo you see is just a still photo.

Oh Ok, the picture did throw me off.

Thank you for bringing attention to such an important topic - our world's current food crisis! Did you know that hunger and malnutrition kill more people in the world than HIV, tuberculosis, and malaria combined?

A great nonprofit that's helping save thousands of malnourished children worldwide is International Medical Corps.

They're close to receiving $1.5 million in funding if enough people vote for them! Check it out here: http://internationalmedicalcorps.smnr.us/
