Unlike Facebook’s Disaster Maps, which rightly assume that hurricanes and earthquakes are forces of nature beyond our control, there are some human disasters Christ’s church can and should directly address in the form of social action. In fact, Christians spearheaded many of the great social-reform movements over the past centuries.
The Spirit of the Lord is upon us. The Spirit of the Lord has anointed us to servant ministry. So, go. Follow the disaster map. But when you get to the place of need, set your map aside, roll up your sleeves, get to work and labor as Jesus calls us to do.
- Luke 4:14 - 21
