A reflection on linen underwear, donuts, and what giving is all about
Amy Frykholm, associate editor of the Christian Century, shares what she learned from a sixth-century wandering monk and one of the stories he told. It’s about a generous “friend of Christ” in ancient Antioch who gathered up various items to distribute to poor people. One day he brought some Egyption-made linen undergarments to give out to people in need. Read about what happened next —and why Amy Frykholm said the story’s message spoke directly to her (and no doubt will speak to us as well).
