How should we respond to the growing lists of crises in our world?

June 23, 2020

Today we answer a question sent in by Elisabeth…

What are practical and productive ways that Christians can respond to the world’s compounding crises (at this current moment, BLM/police brutality and the Yemen crisis, but at the rate we are going it’ll be something new tomorrow) in a way that allows us to both a) remember that God is in control and we have hope in Him and b) actually help enact meaningful change in our world in a gentle, gracious way? What should the balance be between trying to fix everything and finding rest in the unreasonable (by definition) but powerful hope that we have in a God who has already overcome the world?

Short version: How do we love our neighbor without despairing at all the neighbors left to be loved (and without yelling at all the neighbors who aren’t helping)?
