“What’s Enough?” A Discussion Guide on Poverty for People of Faith
Posted on April 16, 2012
The reality of poverty here in Minnesota is huge, and growing. It can often be overwhelming to hear the stories. The statistics. It’s understandable that many of us find ourselves feeling anxious, indifferent, angry, at a loss. Our ability to make a difference or affect change seems naïve.At A Minnesota Without Poverty, we believe that each of us can make a difference. And we believe that people working together to become informed about the reality of poverty and the issues that affect poverty can make a huge difference, and can affect tremendous change. We offer this “What’s enough?” series in response to and in support of the remarkable work begun by faith leaders and the Minnesota State Legislature in the mid/late 2000s. It draws much of its material from the original 2020 ENOUGH FOR ALL: A Discussion Guide for People of Faith. We hope that it will be useful in providing one way for people in faith communities to begin talking about the concept of “enough”, to more fully understand the issues of poverty here in our state, and to be energized in imagining ENOUGH FOR ALL in “A Minnesota Without Poverty!”
