Why we do what we do

Why do we work to see the gospel come into every cultural nook and corner of the human species?

That would be because it:

    • gives strength to the weak and comfort to the sad
    • straightens the crooked
    • empowers the poor
    • restores purity and wholeness to the soiled and damaged
    • rebuilds broken families
    • turns substance-abusers into useful members of society
    • offers hope to the broken
    • helps people forgive the unforgiveable
    • provides community to the lonely and care for the sick
    • drives movements of social justice
    • lets the shamed find mercy and the pleasure-lovers find meaning
    • reconciles enemies
    • welcomes strangers
    • masters our fears
    • steers the hot-headed into thoughtfulness, wisdom and peace
    • underlines the beauty of an ordinary life
    • takes the sting out of death
  • opens the way for peace with God
Paradox, and what to do with it.
