Want Some Hope Today? Here.

meLmD1sIt’s been a rough week in American Christendom.

And while the issues surrounding World Vision’s decision and subsequent reversal, and the amped-up responses to both, are outside the normal topical scope of this blog, I’ll just say that when American Christians publicly fight amongst themselves, particularly with such vitriol, we all lose. More than that, the mission loses. And that’s tragic.

Oh how I crave healthy venues that demonstrate that Christians can disagree, deliberate and debate…in love. On this week’s LGBTQ topic for sure, but also on every topic, gender equality and male privilege included.

Lord, have mercy.

So in light of the week that has been, allow me to share a story of hope. It’s the story of “The Boy Who Walked For Water.” It’s a photo essay, and, trust me, you’ll be glad you experienced it.

What could an obscure Malawian boy teach us about courage and boldness? Heck, what could such a boy teach us about gender equality?


To whet your appetite, here’s a screen shot:
