The Line

Last night...
Our whole family watched a short film called The Line... about poverty right here in the First World. Wow! So many ways we can help... friends, let's not sit still and stay comfortable any longer!

On this rainy and wet Saturday...
I urge you to take 45 minutes of your time to watch The Line... to get to know and to get educated about the poor among us. Watch it with your whole family... even my 12-year-old boy was captivated throughout the whole 45 minutes... and was in a pondering mood after that.

{Please pause the playlist on the sidebar of this blog as you watch this video.}

Friends, I hope that this video will help you to consider being active in helping the poor among us... because the abundant joy that results from giving away and reaching out to the needy is something truly worth celebrating!

It's why I'm utterly excited about our church's next mission, Transform... as it calls us to be radically generous in compassion! Watch our Teaching Pastor and Senior Pastor explain the mission in more detail here! Very exciting... I love the mission's boldness and God-sized-ness, if there's such a word! :-)

This month of October, I am participating in a blog link up called 31 Day Series. I will be writing about Celebrating JOY! Click on the banner below for 1000+ other topics! 

Compassion is a command, an act of worship, a song of thanks to Him.
Do justice. Love mercy. Walk humbly with God!
