"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)



Thanks to Ethics Daily for picking up my post on giving to those who beg from you.

I just read your article on Ethics Daily about giving to those who beg. Our church is an historic downtown church which, in the 1970's, chose to stay rather than move to suburbs and it's routine for us to be approached in the parking lot by street people asking for handouts. It's hard for us, also, to know what is right and, I confess, I'm always relieved when our minister in charge of community ministries is close by to take responsibility. But such incidents seem petty in comparison to your description of the little girl with cancer who lives in a place of such poverty as to make life on a quiet city street in North Carolina seem luxurious. You did what was right and good and, with you, I pray for even more good to come for the little girl and her family.
