Sunday Reflection: Help Me Help a Good Guy Do Good Things!


This week on Thursday, I get to speak at the annual banquet for Twin Cities Christian Legal Aid, which is housed at First Covenant Church and is headed up by my friend, collaborator, and former student David Best. I really believe in David, and in his work with TCCLA.

You can pull up more information on the organization here (and contact them for details). Here is some of the basic 'deets:

Mission​

Serving the poor, disabled and homeless by offering legal advice, limited assistance and spiritual counsel as well as referrals to Christian and other agencies in order to help individuals and their families become free of legal entanglements and become reconciled with God.

How We Operate


We are focused on serving those making 150% of the federal poverty guidelines or less. TCCLA primarily provides free advice on a one-time basis and referrals to attorneys that may be able to provide further assistance. 

Christian Identity

TCCLA is an independent 501(c)3 Christian organization, committed to reflecting the values of Jesus Christ and the historic teachings of the church. Each of our board members and volunteers sign a statement of faith.

Because of our Christian faith, we seek to maintain an atmosphere of love and respect for all people regardless of race, color, ethnic origin, age, religion, disability, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or veteran status. TCCLA does so out of a commitment to the rule of law and the tenets of the Christian faith. 

 



Comments:
Good column in the Waco Trib today. Starr's column is also interesting and worthwhile reading.

I applaud your friend for operating a clearly Christian legal aid organization where all are welcome. It is a necessity because the legal community at large does not perform the pro bono service that each attorney should provide. Our mutual Waco friend at Mission Waco' legal clinic needs all the help he can get as well.

Thanks for all you do.
 
Thanks! It was great to see you in person a few weeks ago-- I need to get back to Waco more often!
 
Thank you! Looking forward to a great event!
