Haiti

I think it would be fair to say that the tragic events to have taken place in Haiti have captured a mood of action across the globe. The fundraising has been found in record time, and to happen in a period of global financial hardship portrays a picture of the affects that Haiti has had on the world. I have been deeply moved by the acts of many many people.

In church today we had a special collection for Haiti and I was blown away by the generosity of my brothers and sisters. I have also been encouraged by the action of the church and of Christians in wanting to give. We will be holding, as a church, a special fundraising evening with a talent show and promise auction, in order to raise more funds.

This has come after returning from Relay 2, where I was challenged by the role of the church in issues of justice. We should care for the poor, for the weak, for the needy. The gospel is more than words, not less, but always more. Our life as Christians should live out this wonderful gospel, not to impress people but because we have a genuine burden.

About

am Jamie, and I am a Christ follower. I love Jesus but more importantly he loves me and made the ultimate sacrifice of his son so that all the things I have done, and will do, have been forgiven. And now I know God, and I pursue to know him more. Motivated and transformed by his grace I live for God, to glorify him by enjoying him.
