ONE Modern Day Prophet

At the Willow Creek Association's 2006 Leadership Summit Senior pastor Bill Hybels interviewed U2 lead singer Bono. Bono painted a poignant picture of the response of the Christian church to emergency of the global Aids and extreme poverty crisis, but reminds us that it is not too late. He asked Americans to rally – ONE by ONE.
"It's not about charity, it's about justice." –Bono
Rick Warren's (Saddleback Church) organized a Global Summit on AIDS and the church.
17 The scroll of the prophet Isaiah was handed to him. Unrolling it, he found the place where it is written:
18 "The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, 19 to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor." –Luke 4:17-19, (from Isaiah 61:1,2)
