Transforming the church
When you think, ‘they should/shouldn’t, the church ought to, if only there were….’, the incredibly painful answer is that ‘I should, I ought to, if only I were’. The miracle of that turnaround IS the transformation Jesus called his disciples to and it’s no different today. Every time we hold back on condemning another, every time WE personally make a move towards one who others hold in contempt, then every time the Church is transformed. No business plan can evaluate love.
I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.
John: 13: 34-35
We thank God for the ministry of Mothers’ Union in South Sudan where safe spaces for survivors of gender-based violence are created and participants are transformed by love and become of pool of educated and sensitized people able to give to their communities.
