The Least of These My Brethren

[This is a replay of the live event]
You want to reach out to someone who’s thought of as the “lowest of the low.” Maybe an unpopular kid, or a prison inmate, or another kind of “outcast.” But it’s WAY harder than you expected…. Don’t worry, we’ve got some help for you. We’ve gathered 2 people, Tricia Chantha and Julio Rivas, who have the reaching out thing down pat. It wasn’t necessarily always easy for them, and they’re willing to share what they’ve learned–and what they’re still learning.
Tune in, come prepared with some questions and please do not shy away from sharing YOUR own experiences of how you are reaching out!
TMC Youth’s Ariana Herlinger is your host for this conversation.
Julio Rivas volunteers his time and skills to schools, churches, and other nonprofit groups, reaching out to runaway teens, prison inmates, and many, many others.
Tricia Chantha has volunteered at a school for at-risk kids; been a counselor in a juvenile lock-up; and still occasionally takes in teens who need home and stability.
Check out these Radical Acts stories by Julio and by Trica:
After an amazing God experience in business school, Julio Rivas got the opportunity to serve as a Christian Science healer for . . . his Jewish roommate. With glorious results!
Tricia Chantha once met someone who was in a strikingly awful situation. So she overcame a feeling of vulnerability and reached out across cultural and religious lines. Check out what happened.
Are you ready to reach out radically?
Radical Acts 2013 is about reaching out to help and heal others. Like last year, we’re featuring 20 of Jesus’ toughest teachings. Choose a Radical Act to live yourself over the next few months and share your story. We’re eager to hear any story about any Radical Act — especially those that involve helping and healing others.
