After a nice walk around campus this afternoon, it's absolutely gorgeous out there today, I decided to have some chocolate ice cream and watch a little TV. So I scanned the channels, finding mostly infomercials and a little bit of sports on, but when I turned it to our local PBS station WGBH, I found an episode of Bill Moyers & Company.
He interviewed Baldemar Velasquez, the President of FLOC, a migrant farm workers union, and I immediately noticed something different about him in his demeanor. And sure enough it quickly became clear that he's a devout Christian who quoted passage after passage of scripture, especially the teachings and sayings of Jesus.
His work with these impoverished farm workers is seen from his deep faith in Christ handed down to him from his mother, and it shows through abundantly clear in this amazing interview. I'm going to find the video on Bill Moyers' website and tag two of our professors here who teach about business ethics and theology. I'd LOVE to see him invited here to GCTS and give a talk about Just Labor and Just Business, all from a devout Christian perspective.
It's so odd, sometimes PBS has the most Christian programming I can find on TV.
