Lovely, Frank! Wow, I am honored to have earned a mention in your beautiful sermon! ;-)
What we need are more people WILLING to speak, WILLING to share, WILLING to suffer the mocking and rejection that may come but standing strong because what they are sharing is the TRUTH.
We had our first PCRM class on Diabetes, we had 16 participants and we had our potluck Sat afternoon, 12 people attended. We had a group out to volunteer yesterday, 12 kids, all watched Farm to Fridge after we served them a vegan lunch!
At the Pet Expo, we had over 200 people take literature and talk to us about what we do and the animals. Over 20 watched Farm to Fridge. No one gets angry at us after watching the film, most did not know! We had a prize drawing for those that watched, the young man who won, we asked what he thought and he was so GLAD we showed him the film because he did not know and he wants to share the film with everyone he knows! You see, all we have to do, as your sermon implies, is follow God's call and be faithful and let God be responsible for the results. He will bless our efforts!
The WORST thing we can do is to isolate ourselves, condemn others, hate the world for the way it is and feel self righteous. We need to humble ourselves and become servants and have the heart of a servant, gentle and loving, and get out there and make a difference. We are the ONLY voice those precious animals' have, don't they deserve the best we can give?
IF anyone needs help or encouragement to become more active, we will be glad to help and supply materials. We need more people standing with us!
To GOD be the glory!
