 November 19, 2006

I haven’t always been a United Methodist. When I was 18, I attended a Methodist church in Mexico and decided to accept God’s grace. I felt secure knowing God was in my life. My response to God’s call to ordination was a gradual process that began with an indigenous child with whom I tried to minister.

arrow icon. Treasurers on Earth: The Gospel of Prosperity 
Young man clears his field in the drought-plagued northern heights of Ethiopia. The “gospel of prosperity” is the belief that God wants Christians to be financially rich. It is promoted by many conservative evangelists, especially tel-evangelists. This gospel appeals to people from various incomes. It confirms to the wealthy that their wealth is proof God loves them, and that it's OK to pursue wealth, even to make it top priority. It appeals to the poor because it seems like a way out of poverty.

No one wants to purchase products made by children, teenaged girls--or any workers-- stripped of their rights and forced to work long hours in harsh sweatshop conditions under armed guards for wages of 20-30¢ an hour. The people of the United States deserve the chance to raise our voices and affirm the dignity of life and human rights over corporate indifference and greed.

Rev Dale Waser, Associate Pastor at Trinity UMC, Arlington, Texas Would I have ever chosen to fly 5783+ miles and sit on a plane for 15+ hours? Would I just choose to spend 1 ½ weeks on my knees in sawdust, wood chips and bent nails, hammering paneling onto a concrete wall? Would I choose to be interrupted by a noisy bunch of children who wanted to try out their skill at hammering a nail? Would I have ever chosen to take only six showers in two weeks? And then spend another 16 ½ hours flying back home?
