Top Texas Needs

September 3, 2009

In his Statesman article this morning, Gardner Selby rehearsed the “eye sores” of Texas, sores that the Church should be actively addressing. Citing from Kay Bailey Hutchinson, Selby noted the following areas of of leading deficiencies in the U.S.:

  • High Property Taxes
  • State Debt
  • College Tuition
  • Highest School Drop-outs
  • Tops Uninsured Children

At the very least, these are matters for prayer. But what would it look like for a church or gathering of churches to address some of these issues locally? How invested are we in schools? Do we know where the uninsured children are? Are we helping redress the gentrification created by high property taxes. I don’t have solutions; but I’d like to be part of an answer.
