"Rather than turning away from unpleasant images in the newspaper or television, perhaps we would make more of an effort to look the stranger in the eye -- feel their pain, empathize with their situation. As it is written in Jeremiah 24:7: 'I will give them a heart to know that I am the LORD; and they shall be my people and I will be their God, for they shall return to me with their whole heart.'" (Rev. Susan Sparks)
My hope is that this video will challenge you to not forget that no matter what our circumstance, we are all children of God - don't turn a blind eye - get out, and make a difference.
