Editorial: The good in the bad
Hurricanes Harvey and Irma have brought out the best in Christians in Texas, Florida and beyond who are serving victims with love and compassion.
From organizing a “Hurricane Bucket Challenge” to feeding 5,000 — hot dogs, not fish — Churches of Christ are finding creative ways to help after Harvey and Irma.
The Gospel of John ends (21:25) by noting: “Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written.”
To make a modern-day application, if The Christian Chronicle were to report all that congregations and individual Christians are doing to help the battered Lone Star and Sunshine states, even all the newsprint in the U.S. would not have room for the stories that would be written.
In this issue of the Chronicle, we provide just a glimpse of the huge difference that Christians are making. To all those acting as Jesus’ hands and feet, we applaud you and thank God for you.
