Ghion Cast: Humility in Giving; Modesty in Living


Every Saturday, the Ghion Cast airs the “Sabbath Epistle” which is a 30 minute segment dedicated to giving back to God as God gave to me. This is not a sermon nor am I using this occasion to preach—I’m far too sinful for me to think I can preach to others. Instead, the Sabbath Epistle, epistle means memorandum by the way, is a chance for me to share my testimony and talk about the lessons I have learned from the bible and from chance encounters with life’s blessings (people and random events) where I can apply the wisdom of the bible not in a theological sense but in a day to day practical way.

“Thus, when you give to the needy, sound no trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may be praised by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you” ~ James 6:2-5

Teodrose Fikre is the editor and founder of the Ghion Journal. A published author and prolific writer, a once defense consultant was profoundly changed by a two year journey of hardship and struggle. Going from a life of of upper-middle class privilege to a time spent with the huddled masses taught Teodrose a valuable lesson in the essence of togetherness and the need to speak against injustice.

Originally from Ethiopia with roots to Atse Tewodros II, Teodrose is a former community organizer whose writing was incorporated into Barack Obama's South Carolina primary victory speech in 2008. He pivoted away from politics and decided to stand for collective justice after experiencing the reality of the forgotten masses. His writing defies conventional wisdom and challenges readers to look outside the constraints of labels and ideologies that serve to splinter the people. Teodrose uses his pen to give a voice to the voiceless and to speak truth to power.
