An appropriate piece for this Christian Aid Week when we see how a coffee bean can transform a village:
They are right,
those who doubt what we do.
It is purely the product of over-active imaginations.
Who but the foolish would look at barren ground and imagine food for all,
see past desolation and believe it will become an oasis,
would not be stopped by war, but live for the day it will be peace,
and reach deep into the world’s fear in the prayer it would bring life.
So if faith is the terrain of the deluded
then may you leave here with the faith of the fools
who have loved the world since it’s beginning
and will live for its redemption until its end.
(From Cheryl at holdthisspace)
Imagine what would change if we had the “faith of fools” – praying… acting and giving out of love and living for redemption.
