At Our Reign of Christ Services, Our Lord Challenged Us to Spread His Kingdom of Love

November 29, 2013

On Sunday, Andre Visscher from the Canadian Foodgrains Bank shared with us a challenging call to spread the reign of our King of love, setting before us a vision where the Kingdom comes and the will of God is done, on earth as it is in Heaven.

I was especially stirred by his story about how he prayed the Lord’s Prayer with the family in Ethiopia pictured at the top of this posting, and was suddenly struck when he got to “Give us this day our daily bread” with the realization that we are called to pray that ALL of God’s children – not just us and our families – will have the food that they need.

It was our great privilege to present Andre with a $500 cheque to the Canadian Foodgrains Bank from St. Paul’s, and to pledge our ongoing support of the work of this ministry to answer this petition by eliminating hunger in the world.
