Acts 8:1-8 ><)))’> + <‘(((>< John 6:35-40
And this is the will of the one who sent me, that I should not lose anything of what he gave me, but that I should raise it on the last day. (John 6:39)
Oh, dear God our loving Father! How can we stop praising and thanking you especially in times like this when those in power harass and malign us working for your people when in their efforts to ignore and dismiss they red tag us and see commies and enemies instead of the beauty of the “community pantry”.
But like the first Christians when they were persecuted and scattered, driven out of Jerusalem except for the Apostles, the more that the Gospel of Jesus was proclaimed to the known world, the more followers were added to the early Church.
After calling us communists and maligning the efforts of the those behind this movement of community pantry, the more it is now spreading far and wide, the more people are beginning to see each other’s face again as a brother and a sister in Jesus Christ hungry and thirsty for food and drink of the body and soul.
Thank you, dear Jesus, in keeping company with us in doing your work ever since.
We trust that not one of us will ever be lost as we lift up to you the organizers of the community pantry, the people who support and the people who benefit from this worthy cause.
Indeed, so many times in life, we need to move out from our comfort zones in order to move in to your divine plan to be realized. Amen.
