Thursday Thoughts

"The goal is not a solution to a problem but a sign of hope". This is the way Jean Vanier's L'Arche communities have been described. Is this the essence of true ministry? That we are not here so much to fix a problem as to be bringers of signs of the coming kingdom - and the coming King?

What do you think? Would love to know your thoughts.

It's proberly half and half. Of course we offer people hope in Jesus, but that doesn't exclude us from offering pratical solutions.

For example if you say to a hungry person, Jesus loves you, but don't offer then any food how does it profit them?

James 2:14
