The Resurrection Moment (Acts 9:36-43)
And that’s the thing: The world, as chaotic and torn as it is right now, needs a little resurrection—needs people like you and me to get up and bring new life to folks who feel like everybody else has given up on them.
LGBT kids are dying, waiting for someone to care about them. Traumatized refugees are languishing in camps, waiting for someone to notice them. African Americans are literally dying in jail, waiting for someone to realize that we seem to live in a system designed not to deliver but to thwart justice. Single parents are trapped in low paying jobs, waiting for a few people to stand up with them and say that you can’t live on $7.25 an hour. Muslims, who live right next to us in fear, are waiting for people like you and me to wrap our arms around them and treat them like sisters and brothers.
