Privilege and Power

Q Talk – Andy Crouch:  http://qideas.org/video/power-privilege-and-risk.aspx

This is a talk from Q from Andy Crouch who talks about privilege and power.  Well worth your 18 minutes!

My take-away is from about 15 minutes in when Andy says, “do we marinate in our past successes or are we focused on continued creativity” and in so doing continue God’s kingdom.  Wow…

Do we stand upon privilege or on God’s continuing power in our life?

Also striking was Andy reminding us that “We have all the privilege we need from God.”  We do not need anymore…  “We must spend our privilege until every other human being has creative power.”   He does not try to say people with power are bad…but they do have responsibility.  Timely message for those of us in the West trying to wrestle with what is our response to the a huge world in need.
