82) Dion Oxford

This week, Mark wikiis God with Dion Oxford, longtime Toronto anti-poverty advocate and founder of The Salvation Army Gateway downtown men's shelter and Causeway.

Dion talks to Mark about:

  • how a young man's life changed when he became friends with "those people,"
  • being frustrated with the church while deeply loving it;
  • the important difference between judging and criticizing;
  • intentional decisions around eliminating feelings of "us and them;"
  • how ministry should not and cannot be one-sided;
  • how the world can only make sense in a God-paradigm;
  • how our lives are a mingling of wounding and blessing.
