Shane Claiborne’s Simple Way Burns Down

Img_5362_bigRegular readers of this blog know that I have been moved by Shane Claiborne’s book The Irresistible Revolution and his Simple Way community in Philadelphia. Reports are coming out of Philly tonight that a 7-alarm fire destroyed an abandoned warehouse along with eight homes and Simple Way’s Community Center building. While no one was injured in the fire Simple Way lost much of its ministry resources and Shane lost everything he owns.

Right now Shane and his folks are still assessing the damage so specific needs will not be addressed for several days. Until then you can send any financial assistance to:
