Wednesday’s speaker was Glen Crawford who works for Schwan's food company. He explained his personal background and how he became involved with helping the poor. He also gave us insight to how his company operates. His main point was that the different aspects of life must mesh together and not be separated. He feels that his faith, work, and family life have meshed together and he is happy about that. He also gave us some numbers about poverty that were basic, but very important.
Having Mr. Crawford speak was very similar to having Dick Gable (I think that's his name) come in to speak. Both talked about the companies that they were working with. In fact, both have worked for America's 2nd Harvest. Both speakers gave personal accounts of encountering the poor. Both are influential business men. Both have stressed the importance of faith in their lives.
Mr. Crawford had a few things to say that really struck me. First, the encouragement to have aspects of you life mesh together. It was great that he received this advice from a Psalm in the Scriptures. Right now, I don't know if different aspects of my life are meshing together or not. It is good to hear encouraging words like that. Another thing he said was that it is an embarrassment that our country is not able to feed our 25 million starving citizens. He said that we need to be at a point where we are reaching out to the world. He is very true in saying this. He knows how resourceful companies can be. And it is apparent that we have billions of dollars to spend because we are spending billions of dollars every week to fight a war that a lot of people are questioning. Well, hunger is something that cannot be questioned. It is here and we need to take care of it now.
