On New Year’s, [Carrie] Davis picked up a book by Christian writer Jen Hatmaker, “7: An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess.”
The book tells Hatmaker’s story as the wife of a pastor to a big church in Austin, Texas, where they were busy loving their fellow well-to-do neighbors as themselves.
Then Hurricane Ike tore through town, and they opened their home to displaced strangers. A 10-year-old boy walked in and yelled, “Dad! This white dude is RICH!” Hatmaker writes.
She hadn’t thought they were.
