We remember the life and work of Sister Ruth Wyrick of the Marsalis Avenue Church of Christ in Dallas, Texas. Born in the segregated South of the 1930s, Sister Wyrick used the power of hospitality and kindness to forever change politics and public service in Dallas. Shay Wyrick Cathey and Christian Chronicle board member Taneise Perry reveal how Sister Wyrick's faith, hope, and love inspired her to change the course of her community's history. Then, Edward Bowen and Devon Newburn explain how they helped turn the Longmont (Colorado) Church of Christ into a medical clinic that serves 11,000 of their neighbors every year. Plus, Christian Chronicle CEO Erik Tryggestad does a little "humble bragging."
