'Dude, Somebody Should Probably Go Save Her . . .'

 
There's no doctrine of our faith that entreats us to sit idly by
 
to be casual observers of the scene 
 
or armchair critics of the culture.
 
We are called to love, to serve, to sacrifice. 
 
Jesus modeled how to do that well. 
 
Deep engagement. 
 
Substantial service. 
 
Powerful action. 
 
Ongoing prayer. 
 
Restful solitude. 
 
Repeat.
 
How will you live out your faith this week?

  1. Today my quiet time thought is "Love as Jesus loves." That "deep engagement" that you challenge us to is exactly what Jesus would do in His great love for us. I am going to remember this video and your words today, Linda. I'm praying they would move me to action in every circumstance. Thanks so much for this awesome nudge toward godliness.

Welcome to the table, friend!

This is where we gather and hang out. I'd love for you to pull up a chair and jump right into the conversation. Or simply say 'hello.'

l'll be dropping in to visit you sometime soon ...

Linda
