NWP Welcomes David Wertheimer. Mr. Wertheirmer oversees the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation on family homelessness. David is also the board chair for @funderstogether and he joins us today on behalf of the Gates Foundation to discuss this issue and what we can do to make a difference. http://www.gatesfoundation.org
Our friend and co-trustee Warren Buffett once gave us some great advice about philanthropy: “Don’t just go for safe projects,” he said. “Take on the really tough problems.”
We couldn’t agree more. Our foundation is teaming up with partners around the world to take on some tough challenges: extreme poverty and poor health in developing countries, and the failures of America’s education system. We focus on only a few issues because we think that’s the best way to have great impact, and we focus on these issues in particular because we think they are the biggest barriers that prevent people from making the most of their lives.
We’re both optimists. We believe by doing these things—focusing on a few big goals and working with our partners on innovative solutions—we can help every person get the chance to live a healthy, productive life.

The purpose of a gate is to control acess in and out of some place. In the Bible, gates represent many things and were therefore very important. Consequently, they were built strong and were heavily defended. They were open during the day and closed at night. They were important to the civic and economic life life of the city. The city's elders sat there to administer judicial matters and kings use that location to meet with their subjects. Often the reading of the law and proclamations were made at the gate. Join us for prayer over your gates. Dial 714 459-3963.

Humanity is conformity
Conformity is society
Society is this reality
The faces that saw me
And the angles that warned me
They told me to run
And dispose of the gun
I could have escaped
Be gone with no trace
Instead I just stayed
Within societies gates
Cos I can run but I can't hide
And I must justify
The way I live my life
Until the day I die
I live within these gates
I cannot go against
So I must see it through
There's nothing left to do
They said I was crazy
And they called me a fool
But words cannot change me
And my respect for the rules
I may be part of the system
But if I could rule this land
The rules would be different
But I am just one man
So I wish I was under a tree
Far away from society
Where the only truth in me
Is the soothing sound of my own entity?
While my other voice is free
It expresses words of plea
To return to a stable form of reality
But I'm inside of that tree
That tree is inside of another tree
The perplexity is infinity
So I will just chill with a spliff
I can run but I can't hide
