One of my living heroes is Dr. John Perkins. The first time that I ever had a chance to be with this contemporary saint was many years ago, when he graciously accepted our invitation to speak to the students at Reed College. The following video tells just a bit of that beautiful story.
The words, presence, example and writings of Dr. Perkins have influenced so many parts of my life, theology and view of the world. I am deeply indebted to him.
Only last week I was speaking together with a dear friend about forever-love and a long Perkins quote seemed like the most appropriate response to the issue at hand.
I hope this video speaks to you.
