The Church Being the Church

I love this report from Bobby Ross Jr., who is the Chief Correspondent for The Christian Chronicle, about the efforts that churches of Christ are making to help those affected by Hurricane Harvey…

HOUSTON — From organizing a “Hurricane Bucket Challenge” to feeding 5,000 — hot dogs, not fish — Churches of Christ are finding creative ways to serve after Hurricane Harvey.

The Gospel of John ends by noting: “Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written.”

To make a modern-day application, if The Christian Chronicle were to report all that congregations and individual Christians are doing to help the battered Lone Star State, even all the newsprint in the U.S. would not have room for the stories that would be written.

But the Chronicle has attempted to provide a glimpse of the difference that people of faith are making — and we are watching developments, too, and praying for those in the path of Hurricane Irma.
