You who are strong, help the weak. You who are rich, help the poor. You who stand upright, help the fallen and the crushed. You who are joyful, comfort those in sadness. You who enjoy all good fortune, help those who have met with disaster. Give something in thanksgiving to God that you are of those who can give help, and not of those who stand and wait for it. – St. Gregory of Nazianzus
I am struggling a bit on how to answer the call. We collected money at my church this past Sunday. I texted $10 to the Red Cross. My congregation is making health kits that we will send off to the IOCC. But the Lord seems to be asking more.
My trip to Haiti in 1985 left a mark on me, on my life. Everyday since the quake I want to renew my long outdated passport and put myself in the position that I could go on a mission trip.
The appeal to help Haiti has gone out and you have heard it. Will you answer this call? That is a question I am trying to answer. What about you?
