It Happened in Houston

A Southern Baptist quoted Gandhi to a room filled with Hindus, Muslims, Jews, Catholics and evangelicals in all shapes and sizes. This is not the set up for a joke. There is no punchline forthcoming. It really happened when the interfaith community of Houston was asked to assist with Hurricane Katrina evacuees.

The quote:

“There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.” Mohandas Gandhi

The result:

30,000+ volunteers

If I had not been there, I would not believe you - but I was and I do!
