“Stop asking God to bless what you’re doing. Get involved in what God is doing — because it’s already blessed.” -Bono

Tonight, we watched the movie Lord, Save Us From Your Followers. I had watched it a few months ago when my sister recommended it. It is an interesting movie– honest yet hopeful. I would absolutely recommend it… it’s available on Netflix Instant Queue.

The narrator uses a few positive examples of Christians– Bono, Nelson Mandela, Pope John Paul II. Another Bono quote which I love…

“Look, whatever thoughts you have about God, who He is or if He exists, most will agree that if there is a God, He has a special place for the poor. In fact, the poor are where God lives… But the one thing we can all agree, all faiths and ideologies, is that God is with the vulnerable and poor.

God is in the slums, in the cardboard boxes where the poor play house… God is in the silence of a mother who has infected her child with a virus that will end both their lives… God is in the cries heard under the rubble of war… God is in the debris of wasted opportunity and lives, and God is with us if we are with them.

One thought on “”

  1. So nice to meet you. I saw your little darlings every week day for 3 weeks. They so need you to come for them. Your daughter's red hair was always so neat to see amongst so much blond. While I was unable to take pictures of the children, I may have a group shot that was given to me that they might be in. email me at theim32@yahoo.com and I will send it to you. I look forward to reading about how your family growing these next few months!Traci
