We are increasingly facing uncertain times today. As natural disasters, financial chaos, and unprecedented tragedies proliferate, please pray for all those who are suffering. Pray that relief efforts would actually be able to get to the people in need and that the power and truth of the gospel forges its way into all the earth. Yet, remember that we have a significant part to play in God’s unfolding drama of his mission to humanity and the world. Seeing ourselves with others as part of this dramatic story is imaginative, challenging, and rich. May God help us to be presently living in the light of the return of Christ, so that our actions towards social, political, and ethical transformation will gain credibility, as we await the redeemer who will renew all things.
