October 15th is Blog Action Day 2008. The topic for this year is Poverty.
I’ll subject poverty to several hacks to get at the root of the problem (I hope some sysadmin somewhere got my joke).
- bible.hack our way to new conceptions of some of the most-quoted Scripture passages on poverty.
- ethics.hack into questioning why Christianity approaches poverty the way it does.
- …and probably a mission.hack on the United Methodist position on poverty in our Social Principles.
So why blog about poverty? Well, the mission statement of the group is right up HX.net principles when it comes to mass participation:
From the smallest online journals, to huge online magazines, to EU ministers, to professionals and amateurs, Blog Action Day is about mass participation. Anyone is free to join in on Blog Action Day and there is no limit on the number of posts, the type of posts or the direction of thoughts and opinions.
