video: How do we embrace those on the margins?

Following up on last week's post, John McKnight–known for his work in asset-based community development–talks here on listening to those on the margins as opposed to labeling them. I appreciate a lot of what McKnight says. But here's a thought: Could it be that "the middle," as he puts it (at 3:50 approx.), needs to move? Could it be that rather than inviting people into our "thing," we need to accept the hospitality of "the other" into their "thing"? Afterall, is this not the posture of the Incarnation?

What do you think?
