A musing...

One of my all time favourite things to do is take photos - and even more so when Im so inspired by the surroundings that encapsualte me. The photos I'm sharing with you today were taken last weekend when we went to give out hand knitted jumpers that the ladies from Eastview Church had lovingly crafted. It was such a joy to be Gods hands and feet and bring a simple thing like warmth for winter to these children. All we did was bring the jumpers, the real work was the hours of labour the ladies spent knitting! Never before have I been so convicted of the role of the Church to play their part in the world. Play their part against the injustice of starvation and poverty and hopelessness. It makes me so happy to know that these ladies cared enough to do what they could with what was in their hand and knit! Thats all we have to do you know, God isnt asking you or me to save the world or to do something hugely extravagant (although thats amazing!) but he does NEED us to use whats in our hand. Do what we can. And if that means that you are a super duper fabulous knitter - then thats what this world needs. You, to knit, for those that cant do it for themselves - like these beautiful babies in Africa. Will you do it?
