I read a good book recently called Revolution: A Field Manual to Changing the World. It once again reiterated all the problems we are facing, especially within Africa. For instance, 3,500 people die each day due to a HIV/AIDS. Why should so many people die of a preventable and treatable disease? Also, 1 out of 7 people don’t have clean water. Not to mention poverty and hunger.
It’s hard not to get jaundice about all the problems in the world or to figure out a way to be part of the solution when it seems so huge. I just see how my church never attempts to even discuss these issues at all. Why don’t we see these issues as pertinent? I don’t get it I guess.
