Thank you, Dr. Barber

Not all Christian and faith leaders in Alabama support the immorality of Roy Moore. Like Dr. Barber, I stand with them and support their efforts to speak the truth about extremeism and blind party politics.

faithfulness in action

Love this guy...but this philosophy shouldn't be attributed to any "religion"...it needs to be practiced by everyone, religious or not. How about just common sense?:

John Wesley would be proud to call President Jimmy Carter a friend and a true disciple of Christ. The President’s lifestyle matches his words. His caring for others and his compassion can be seen daily in his actions.

President Carter is a lifelong member of the Baptist Church The quote,however, is from John Wesley, the founder of the United Methodist Church.

The source of the quote is not as important as its message. Faithfulness demands a lifestyle of caring and compassion that helps create a world of justice where love trumps hatred and mercy is more important than money.

how prayer works…by someone who should know

'You pray for the hungry. Then you feed them. This is how prayer works." Pope Francis:

Praying for the hungry means feeding the hungry. Pope Francis has it right. This is how prayer works. Caring enough to pray for the hungry means little if our compassion isn’t deep enough to lead us to action.

We can, and we should, end hunger in the next 15 years. Working together we can change the world forever. Praying for the hungry is necessary to make it happen. Feeding the hungry is necessary to make it happen. Changing our values and our consumer-oriented and our wasteful lifestyles are all also necessary.

The key to ending hunger in our lifetime is taking action. We just need to care enough to act.

only when necessary

st francis of assisi:

One of the messages scrolling across the digital signboard of Forest Road United Methodist Church in Lynchburg, Virginia proclaims:

“Your life is the only Bible some people will ever read.”

Hopefully, the message those people read is one of faithfulness and love, where the grace and compassion of Christ is freely given and available to all.
