A Week of Christian Action...

"The practical result of this, for us, is that now on earth the whole of Christ's life is always being lived, things that happened to Him on earth are happening to Him now in His members; the things that He did on earth, He is doing now through us. In us are all His needs as man. His need of food and drink and sleep, of sympathy, friendship, comfort, and love; His need of solitude, His need to adore." By Caryll Houselander

The quote above is part of a much more extensive and lovely piece of literature. Please visit Prayer, Poetry and Praise for the rest of this wonderful excerpt.
It has been our privilege to attend the Vanderburgh County Right to Life banquet for a number of years. Each year about 1,500 people of all Christian denominations come together to give support to this Pro-Life movement. If only this banquet were a celebration of life alone. Tomorrow evening the speaker will be Cal Thomas. It is wonderful to experience the coming together of God's people in this way. In this way we are able to proclaim the value of every human life, born and unborn. We all have worth! And we are witnesses as the Body of Christ.

Then Thursday night, as Christians from all denominations, we are called to gather at St. Benedict Cathedral in Evansville to silently voice our concerns at the Social Justice Action Meeting. Not by the clanging of bells or the tooting of horns but by the silence of numbers we are to bring before the mayor and city council, who will be in attendance, our concerns regarding the need for affordable housing for the working poor. It is the hoped that by addressing this real problem "hope and dignity" will be given to those most in need.

You see, as the Body of Christ, we are called to action. We are not to sit passively by and watch...we must contribute. Christianity is NOT a spectator sport!!!

I would ask all of you for your prayers as we endeavor to bring about Christ's teaching by living the Beatitudes not just reflecting on them.


Thanks be to God!
