Cyclists’ three R’s of hunger – revelation, revolution and revenue

The Tour de Revs, three friends’ 13,000 mile trek on a bamboo bicycle to raise awareness of world hunger, is about three “revs” – revelation, revolution and revenue. In a world where the richest 20 percent of the population consumes nearly 80 percent of the goods and services, and billions live on less than $2 a day, God’s word to Israel that “there shall be no poor among you” offers US Lutherans a chance to make a big difference in global suffering.
