It’s Friday, but …

Tony Campolo (born 1935) is one of the most contagious people I know. I’ve been with him twice, listened to numerous video presentations and read his words. He is a professor emeritus of sociology at Eastern Pennsylvania University. He and a fellow faculty member are now serving a missional congregation in south Philadelphia.

For many years, Tony was a member at the predominately African-American Mt. Carmel Baptist Church in west Philadelphia. From that experience came one of Tony’s most memorable stories. After he preached a sermon at Mt. Carmel, the pastor’s words that followed his became the message that everyone took away.

No one can tell it better than Tony, so enjoy the video linked below. It seems particularly appropriate today, on this Good Friday.
