It is easy to feel overwhelmed when we look at all the areas of need in God’s world: there is hunger, sickness, and injustice in so many communities.  It is easy to feel there is nothing we can do to help.  We can feel trapped by hopelessness and fear that what little we can do –won’t have an impact.

As the Apostle Paul writes, “by the power at work within us,” God is able to “accomplish abundantly more than we can ask or imagine” (Ephesians 3:20).
We are the agents of transformation that God uses to transfigure this world.

-Archbishop Desmond Tutu
Wishing and dreaming of a better world means nothing if we don’t realize that God gives us community to practice love and compassion.  We cannot only care for ourselves, but we must also care about those around us, both near and far.
Our gifts to One Great Hour of Sharing become part of a loving legacy in ways we can’t foresee.  Our gifts become blessings to people we don’t know and blessings in ways we can’t expect.  We can make a difference beyond what we can imagine.
