Faith and Advocacy

After attending a large university in Colorado for two years, I transferred to California Lutheran College, back when it was a college, not yet a university. While there, I became very involved in campus ministry, and attended a campus ministry retreat lead by George Johnson, the director of the hunger program of the former American Lutheran Church. It was at this retreat I learned that hunger exists throughout the world not because there is insufficient food produced to feed the world’s population, but because that food is not evenly distributed. I learned that certain nations, including our own, consume and even waste a significantly higher percentage of the earth’s resources than others.
