Modest church has big heart
What an enlightening segment on the news this week. The preacher and congregation of a small independent church in Panmure have shown that although not wealthy, they have the far more precious wealth of true Christian compassion and love.
They have taken it upon themselves to help some of the most vulnerable people in society, those who have been so woefully let down by the Government and agencies that should have been there for them. Those who are suffering from illness and have found themselves alone on the street, have been taken in and given shelter, security and hope.
The church has turned its offices into accommodation, rented property to house homeless people and taken them into their homes. It can truly be said that those with the least give the most.
How truly inspiring it would be to see some of the large Eastern Suburbs churches, full of wealthy “Sunday” Christians, get behind this little church with its caring congregation and show some real Christianity in action!
