In the July 4 issue, LinC considers how The United Methodist Church recently became the latest Christian denomination to join in a boycott of Taco Bell®. The boycott protests the low wages paid to the workers who pick tomatoes for the popular fast-food chain. We also ask the question, How should Christians react to the complexities of economic injustice? Key Scriptures are: Leviticus 25:10; Amos 5:21-24; Matthew 25:31-46; and John 6:1-14.
In the July 11 issue, LinC takes a look at Fox’s The Simple Life 2 and how American princesses Paris and Nicole are again deprived of the luxuries they otherwise enjoy. “The Christian Life” requires us to make similar sacrifices; but we are called to lives of humility and service even when the cameras aren’t rolling.
