#rethinkchurch: evil

20130221-205521.jpg
Everyday huge amounts of people go hungry. Not just in drought afflicted areas across the earth, but here in the United States. If all was right in the world and with humanity, this wouldn’t happen. For some to go hungry while others are well fed is evil. In God’s kingdom and in the future desired reality of God, hunger will be no more. All who are hungry will be filled; all will have a place at the heavenly banquet.

Certainly there are folks who take advantage, in a selfishly cruel sense, of the goodness of others like this food closet at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Midtown. But an offer of a hand up, or at least some groceries, remains. There’s too much evil in the world not to try and do good.
