"What Will Be Asked of Us On Judgement Day?" with Tony Campolo

Christ is waiting to be encountered in the poor, the sick, and the alien. We will explore how the presence of such people are sacramental means for experiencing Christ's presence in those persons, and the responsibilities that all of this places on each of us here and now. Includes information about the work of Beyond Borders, specifically the Graduation Program, empowering people to escape deep poverty in Haiti.

NOTE: The original scheduling of this event in March included a meal and compline prior to the talk. This new April date is not preceeded by meal and compline. We apologize for any confusion.

‘When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on the throne of his glory. All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats, and he will put the sheep at his right hand and the goats at the left. Then the king will say to those at his right hand, “Come, you that are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.” Then the righteous will answer him, “Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry and gave you food, or thirsty and gave you something to drink? And when was it that we saw you a stranger and welcomed you, or naked and gave you clothing? And when was it that we saw you sick or in prison and visited you?” And the king will answer them, “Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.”

 ~ Matthew 25:31-40
