Saintly Love in Delhi's Slums

Cambridge, MA. Several blogs ago, I mentioned that Dr. Kiran Martin spoke recently at the Center for the Study of World Religions. Dr. Martin is founder of Asha, an organization dedicated to the health, education, and well-being of some of the poorest citizens of the poorest neigbhorhoods of New Delhi, India. Her work is remarkable, and her witness to Christ in action most edifying. You can watch her lecture at the Center's site.

I plan to visit Dr. Martin and Asha when I am in Delhi in July, and will tell you more then.
