Faith Without Works is Dead #Haiti #2016

June 21st, 2015 · No Brilliant Opinions · International Travel, Random Things That Make Me Smile

The  attack on Mother Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church this week has left me depressed, exhausted and angry.  But in the midst of trying to wrap my head around  this act of domestic racial terrorism, I have been inspired by the grace and strength of this congregation.

The black church has been the only American institution that holds a mirror up to the world and reveals to it a message of   black love, self-sufficiency, community, and stewardship.  Today I attended a ministry meeting for “Homes for Haiti.”  Next year, we will be packing up and spending a week in Haiti, working along with the community to build homes for families in need. Haiti-map

I’m excited about the journey ahead.  I’m thrilled to be able to use my faith as a means to heal and build.  Thank you Mother Emanuel for inspiring me.
