Saturday Sillies

TIMS – A Revolutionary New One for One Campaign

So I debated about whether to post this video because “Saturday Sillies” are just supposed to give you a good, clean laugh…nothing more. While this video is funny and pokes fun at some laughable aspects of the Christian subculture, the subject matter is serious. So, have a good laugh…but afterwards maybe think about the ways in which we think we’re helping the developing world when in fact we’re spending “$600 on a blender” and possibly even harming the people we obliviously think we’re helping. One more thing before I get off the soapbox – check out When Helping Hurts: How to Alleviate Poverty Without Hurting the Poor…and Yourself.

  1. Wow I really like this; great satire that exposes some of lack of focus on the Gospel in missions projects and/or addressing felt needs instead of real needs or inventing problems when there’s other more basic problems in the field along with this video being a critique of the lack of cultural sensitivity the West can have in viewing missions!
