This piece by one of my favorite bloggers was thought-provoking to me. I love the idea that the Church is where people will turn when they are in need. And I am hopeful that my church is available in that way. What choices are we making as churches and as individuals to be present with those in need, to be the body of Christ in action?
- "I have one life and one chance to make it count for something . . . I'm free to choose what that something is, and the something I've chosen is my faith. Now, my faith goes beyond theology and religion and requires considerable work and effort. My faith demands -- this is not optional -- my faith demands that I do whatever I can, wherever I am, whenever I can, for as long as I can with whatever I have to try to make a difference." - Jimmy Carter
