Faith Q's presents: Why does poverty exist? And what can we do about it...

Throughout the evening, let us know what questions you have about poverty by submitting your questions via Twitter & Facebook with the #FaithQs hashtag. It may get chosen to be a part of the panelist discussion!

It’s often been said that the opposite of faith is not doubt, but certainty.

Faith includes questions; it does not deny them.

Faith Q’s is a series where resident experts gather to share their expertise on the many questions we have about the faith.

Tonight, our faith question is: Why does poverty exist?

Poverty is a reality for many individuals and families. But unless you’ve experienced poverty, it’s difficult to truly understand. Join us for a poverty simulation, hosted by CitySquare, intended to bridge that gap from misconception to understanding. A poverty simulation is an interactive immersion experience. It sensitizes community participants to the realities of poverty.
