I don’t think we can underestimate the importance of Ron Sider’s books being sold in Christian bookstores in the last few decades. Rich Christians in an age of Hunger absolutely changed my life.

One of my professors in undergrad, after listening to know-it-all-19-year-old me rant in class all semester about how the church didn’t care about the poor handed me a copy of Rich Christians in an Age Of Hunger. I was never the same.

"I read Rich Christians, and then..." This phrase is stitched into countless stories of people seeking to live and love like Jesus. Thankful that in college I read Rich Christians, and then went to study and work with Ron, opening a new ministry path.

Today I want to celebrate Ron’s retirement by saying well done, servant of God. You were faithful in things great and small and have impacted many people more deeply than you know.

I first learned about Ron's work when researching faith and politics grad programs. I found a program connected to Ron's work -I read about evangelicals who cared about poverty, racism, nationalism. I took a deep sigh of relief. I wasn't alone.

As a younger evangelical leader, I thank God for Ron Sider. He challenged evangelicals to love our neighbor and transformed our engagement on social issues. I doubt I (or many of my peers) would still embrace the movement if it were not for him.

Ron Sider heard God's call to be a voice for the poor and the oppressed in an inconvenient time, he didn't waver. His commitment stay the course regardless of the cost. The Evangelical Movement is indebted to him.

As a young Christian, so many of the people I admired had Ron Sider's "Rich Christians in an Age of Hunger" (). Their commitment to a simple lifestyle for the sake of the Gospel shaped me deeply

Dr. Sider was one of the first Christian male leaders that I ever heard praise their wife's accomplishments & intelligence - not just her beauty or domestic abilities. As a student in his class, I felt confident he took my work seriously. A gift.

I served as a Sider Scholar in seminary, had classes w/ Ron: faith & politics, war & pacifism. He models what it looks like to live your "academic principles" in daily life. His exortation for me to get my Ph.D. stays in my mind - some day, Dr. Sider.

Ron Sider has convicted my conscience and inspired my heart. But where I have met him most deeply is in the communion of loving fatherhood. Thank God for Ron!

Ron is the kind of leader I aspire to be like: hopeful, humble, committed to practicing what he preaches, always listening and learning, and eager to lift up those around him. It is one of my life’s great privileges to know and work with Ron! (3/3)

In 2001 Ron Sider was one of the visionary leaders who envisioned Christian Churches Together. They believed in a body of Christ that is inclusive of all Christians.

I didn't of Ron Sider's work until last year. When I listened to him speak about poverty, I came to understand how he'd influenced so many. His straightforward talk about justice and faith is an inspiration. Happy retirement, Ron.

My campus fellowship at William and Mary read Ron Sider's book. It motivated me to join the Peace Corps and to address poverty in the US and globally. Sider's book gave me words to express my faith in Jesus who said bring good news to the poor.
