I have made it known before that one of my favorite authors is G.K. Chesterton. He wrote many reviews about famous authors. One of those authors was George Bernard Shaw. Shaw had written a play about idealism and Chesterton wrote these words that are certainly applicable to our day and age. The play, he wrote was, “a really sharp exposition of the dangers of “idealism,” the sacrifice of people to principles, and Shaw is even wiser in his suggestion that this excessive idealism exists nowhere so strongly as in the world of physical science. He shows that the scientist tends to be more concerned about the sickness than about the sick man; but it was certainly in his mind to suggest here also that the idealist is more concerned about the sin than about the sinner.”

He served on the Board of LCMS World Relief and Human Care for ten years and is now the Chairman of the Board of International Missions. He has been privileged to travel around the world and see the churches mercy work in action.
