just a little reminder…

Image may contain: text

We don’t feed people to change their point of view. We don’t feed people to proselytize them. We don’t feed people “so they can be saved.” Feeding people is not a strategy for evangelism.

We feed people because they are hungry. We feed people because we follow the example of our Lord. We feed people to demonstrate God’s love to a hurting  world.

We feed people because we want to be faithful disciples. We do not feed the hungry to get another notch on our Bibles.

I’m with her

Thank you, Sally Yates for doing the right thing in the right way at the right time. All patriotic citizens of the United States owe you a debt of gratitude.

You took immediate action to uphold the traditional values of the United States. Your action in defiance of #BLOTUS was a true demonstration of faithfully defending equality and freedom. I applaud your strength of character, and commend you for defending the Constitution.

May we all be inspired by this courageous lady who has acted in the best tradition of our nation. And may we all follow her example in standing up against the unbridled bigotry and continuing attacks against our Constitution. United we stand.

a sign for our times

These are definitely words to remember as we go through the next four years. We have to work together to encourage each other and to demonstrate to the rest of the world that not everyone in our country has given up on love, mercy and caring for one another.

do something wonderful

Isn’t this our call as people of faith? We are to live in the love which has first been shown to us. Reflecting that love to others is what life is all about.

If we demonstrate Christ’s love to all those we meet (and the key word here is demonstrate), there are some who won’t understand, but there are others who will not only soak up that love but also share it.  Do something wonderful this week.  Do something that demonstrates the love that we call Emmanuel.

a “Christian lifestyle”

The Apostle Paul provides us with a clear and concise reminder of how we are to live as followers of Jesus Christ. These are traits that reflect God’s love, and they demonstrate a serious attempt to model our lives like our master and teacher.

If these traits are not evident in a person’s lifestyle it might be a sign of a shallow spirituality, or that there is no real depth to their discipleship. We demonstrate our faithfulness by the way we live, not by what we say.

#ZeroHunger

Imagine #zerohunger.

Our generation is the first in history with the possibility of ending hunger forever. Think about what a world changer that will be. Working together we can create a world where every child is fed and not one of our human family goes to bed with an empty stomach.

What a powerful legacy to leave to our children and grandchildren. Creating a world with #zerohunger is both the right thing to do and is a powerful demonstration of our global community living more justly.

#zerohunger…lets make it happen. Let’s eradicate hunger in our lifetime.
