The Purpose of Live8

Bob Geldof and his fellow campaigners are more ambitious now. The Irish rock singer’s expletive-peppered appeals for money have been replaced by a call to “tilt the world on its axis” in favor of the poor.

The campaign’s initial focus is the summit of leaders from the powerful G8 countries in Scotland next week.

As part of the broader Make Poverty History coalition of aid agencies, churches and other groups, Live 8 has three key demands for the G8 leaders — double aid to Africa, cut African countries’ debts and make trade fairer.

Moby Interview

” ‘One of my other favorite quotes is, “Those who are sick are in need of a doctor.” And the sad thing is we’re all sick. It’s part and parcel of the human condition, and it’s especially part and parcel of living in the United States in the 21st century. We’re all sick. We’re all deeply unhappy, disconnected, unwell people. We need each other, and we need God. And if God made the universe and if God made us and if God made the world, it just makes sense to invite God into our lives and ask Him, “You made me – what should I be doing?” ‘

Adele excerpts Relevant‘s interview with Moby.

“the poor”

since beth and i have gotten involved in one.org, verses that i had never noticed before are now jumping out at me from the text – these just from Proverbs:

  • …happy is he who is gracious to the poor
    Proverbs 14:21b (all quotes New American Standard Bible)
  • He (who oppresses the poor taunts his Maker,
    But he who is gracious to the needy honors Him.
    14:31
  • He who is gracious to a poor man lends to the LORD,
    And He will repay him for his good deed.
    19:17
  • He who is generous will be blessed,
    For he gives some of his food to the poor.
    22:9
  • He who increases his wealth by interest and usury
    Gathers it for him who is gracious to the poor.
    28:8
  • He who gives to the poor will never want,
    But he who shuts his eyes will have many curses.
    28:27
