We were blessed to have as our guests at Breakthrough today, Ron Hall and Denver Moore, the authors of the book, Same Kind Of Different As Me. They told their story to a group of about 80 ministers and friends of the ministry. If you haven't read the book, you simply must. It is the moving story of Ron, a wealthy art dealer, whose wife, Deborah, brought him into the Union Gospel Mission in Fort Worth, Texas, where he met Denver, a former sharecropper from Mississippi who had been homeless for forty years. At his wife's insistence Ron began a friendship with Denver that deepened when Deborah was stricken with cancer and finally died. Their experience models the love of Christ that breaks down barriers of race and class and teaches us to love one another.
They were also interviewed today by Anita Lustrea on Midday Connection at Moody Radio. You can listen to the show at this link.
