Sometimes I look at my life and realize that I am ridiculously blessed. Seriously, it's ridiculous. Then I look around and see so much need, so much pain, so much desperation... and it doesn't make sense to me! In fact, it often makes me feel guilty.
Then I realize that I've been placed in a set of circumstances with a set of gifts by an all-knowing God - and I know I need to do something.
Over the years, I've discovered that I love to learn and that I love to connect people... So my hope is that this site will be a one-stop shop for education and collaboration.
I'm especially passionate about this issue when it comes to Christians. Jesus loved, healed, and gave us a perfect example of love and truth to follow. Can you imagine if every Christian (aka follower of Jesus) were to follow that example?? I think this world would be a radically different place. More than that, I think the world's view of Christians and of God would be radically different.
Let's work together.
