Some Thoughts on "Mission"

A friend asked me to distill - into a sentence or two - why I go or feel compelled to serve around the world. Part of me wants to preface this with about 100 disclaimers, yet I will refrain.

"War, natural disaster, & tragedy - moments of extreme vulnerability - lead to opportunities to demonstrate God's extraordinary presence. On these occasions Christians can participate in God's Holy work of healing the world by BEING the Church - the Body of Christ - an actual, tangible encounter of Christ to those desperately in need of God's love, compassion, grace, and peace."
