what goes on in our hearts and minds when we sit in front of a TV set and see Mums, Dads, children, and the lonely and bereaved driven from their homes, often hunted, forced to endure bullets, bombs, chemical weapons, and high seas, suffering the loss of home and loved ones, and lacking basic shelter, food, clothes, clean water, and sanitation?
I am sure we should be doing something, our small part, though I’m not sure what form that should take. I think it would be worthwhile investigating what we can do. A number of people have recommended we look into the ‘Simple love’ program. I’ll do that and let you know about it if it seems right for us.
Granted, there are many worthwhile charities, and granted, the church is primarily be about evangelism and discipleship. Yet now is the hour of refugees who need our help. What would the person who first told the parable of the Good Samaritan say to us about our response to refugees?
Think and pray with me about it. Thanks.
