We can tend to insulate ourselves against the harshness of what is going on around us. We build thicker walls to keep the noise out. We ignore news because it is “all bad.” We need to keep our eyes and ears open. There is unhappiness around and we need to LISTEN to the why.

Wage peace with food
One last post (for now) on the book The End of Hunger. (Basic book review is HERE.) While we have a lot of good news over the last few decades in the cause to end hunger, the last few years have had their toll. The biggest issue: conflict. Those in need of emergency assistance (meaningContinue reading “Wage peace with food”
I have been working my way back through The End of Hunger to take in … or “digest” (okay, pun intended) … the hope found in this book. There are some convicting statistics that need to change my actions.

We have become so skilled at drawing a crowd, but in our skill to draw a crowd, we have substituted that for the very presence of God. We have fallen intoContinue reading “A new generation of bold faith”
Feed My Starving Children
Our church youth and adults participated in something incredible last night. Feed My Starving Children is an organization that packages food to send to the neediest places on earth. They get the food to organizations on the ground and let those organizations distribute meals to kids who get no other chance to eat something nutritious.Continue reading “Feed My Starving Children”
