People prefer seeing true Christians over hearing about Christianity. Many notice when they see those who embody their beliefs and enact them. Dr. Paul Farmer noticed in his early days in medical school.
He spoke last month at the Divinity School, Yale University, about the corporal works of mercy. He knows them well. Jamie L. Manson wrote about Dr. Farmer’s visit in the NCR. It was an ecumenical event requiring two overflow-rooms to accommodate those who came. The YouTube video of his lecture is embedded below.
