Less than a week to Tony Campolo

If you have not done so yet, make sure you get your tickets to Tony Campolo now. You will not want to miss out on one of the world’s best known speakers and social commentators on his very first visit to Fredericton.

Tony Campolo will entertain, inspire and challenge us with his stories and insights. Here are a few quotes from Tony Campolo:

I have three things I’d like to say today. First, while you were sleeping last night, 30,000 kids died of starvation or diseases related to malnutrition. Second, most of you don’t give a shit. What’s worse is that you’re more upset with the fact that I said shit than the fact that 30,000 kids died last night

“When you were born, you cried and everybody else was happy. The only question that matters is this: When you die, will YOU be happy when everybody else is crying?”

Jesus refers to the poor over and over again. There are 2,000 verses of Scripture that call upon us to respond to the needs of the poor. And yet, I find that when Christians talked about values in this last election that was not on the agenda, that was not a concern. If you were to get the voter guide of the Christian Coalition, that does not rate. They talk more about tax cuts for people who are wealthy than they do about helping poor people who are in desperate straits.”

Want to hear more? Come to Smythe Street Cathedral at 7 PM on Saturday June 16. You will not be disappointed!!
