Now is the time...Haiti
In ministry...timing is everything. A relationship either moves forward or stalls based on timing. A plan or vision moves strongly into the future or is is significantly delayed based on timing. Now is the time.
If you have been challenged by the news footage of the Haiti earthquake and the resulting devastation...now is the time.
You can worry about how the funds will be received and distributed or you can trust that by faith your gift will go to meet a specific need and not be derailed to something that is insignificant.
The bottom line is ... do it now. The need is now and the need will continue into the future. Do it now and do it later as well. Don't let your reservations and all the "what if's" stop you from doing what your Christian faith tells you to do. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
Let me suggest United Methodist Committee on Relief ( UMCOR) as your favorite and most effective agency. I would be happy to help you discover a way to give, to be Christian, and to trust that faith will prevail.
Join us Sunday for more details. Let's look forward with hope!
