I need a good God and a welcoming gospel
Hoping for a quick control for the fire in beautiful Yosemite.
Am I being selfish to continue believing in a good God and a welcoming gospel? I hear constant discussions about the self justification of violence from the middle east as we choose sides about the right to bomb Israel and Gaza. The desparation of those risking life and limb to leave the violence and poverty of their homes in Hondurus or Haiti for the hope of a better life echos mans inate desire to live a quality of life that is meaningful.
I continue to speak weekly about a God who desires to give us peace and goodness in this life and in the life to come. He is not driven by His own need to be righteous as driven by His purpose to be compassionate, healing, empowering, and blessing.
