Charles Spurgeon 1886
“It is horrible to be living to be saved, living to get to heaven, living to enjoy religion, and yet never to live to bless others, and ease the misery of a moaning world. Do you not know that it is all nonsense to regard religion as a selfish spiritual trade by which we save our own souls? It is useless to hope for peace till you know how to love. Unless your religion tears you away from yourself, and make you live for something nobler than even your own spiritual good, you have not passed out of the darkness into the light of God.”
This link reminds us that women are agents of change:
We have been praying for the future direction of Women in Focus. Someone asked if it would be missed if Women in Focus ceased it’s work. No one is indispensable, but we came to the firm conclusion that if we did not speak out regarding the issues that women face, who would? If we were not the voice within the CBWC addressing the oppression that women world-wide suffer and we did not offer opportunity to support our global sisters, who would champion against such injustice. We affirm our calling as women focused upon addressing injustice and offering hope for a better world!
We will be a voice and a place for women!
