So what can we do?

So you've heard us talk about missions, missions and more missions but what can you practically do now?

We can PRAY for a start for the global issues that we hear on the news.  (I hope you've been trying to watch more world news recently.. ;P)

We can also give to the organisations that deal with those issues.  Last week, Nadia talked about poverty of children around the world with the 'typical' kid living on just $2 a day.  Remember to bring $$ to youth if you want to support UNICEF in this cause.

But what about the needs in our "own backyard"?  It's good to develop a heart for global issues but at the same time we should not neglect the needs at our door step.

So that's why Uncle Peter Moritz (Sarah and John's Papa Bear) is coming to give us a talk about the volunteer organisations that he and the Baby Bears have been involved in.  

Whilst the world sees volunteering  as purely optional and up to the individual.  In God's eyes, giving to the needy has never been an option.  It's an act of obedience to God. 

He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.  Micah 6:8  

Remember how Jesus criticized and condemned the well-off teachers of the religious law and Pharisees for keeping money to themselves and neglecting the more important matters of justice i.e. caring for the poor, crippled, lame and blind?    

So come.  See what you can do for the needy in Perth.
