So I stumbled upon this blog post from the Desiring God blog, today. It featured an opportunity to partner up with a non-profit organization, Charity: water, by giving a $20 “bottle of water”. Twenty dollars is enough to provide water to someone in a developing nation for 20 years, because the funds are all pooled together to dig wells and provide clean water to those people.
A little background on this organization. It was started by Scott Harrison, a photographer who spent 8 months on a Mercy Ship. Mercy Ships is a Christian non-profit organization that provides health care and so much more through expertise and partnership with communities, and they do this by traveling around in huge ships that serve as floating hospitals. Anyways, I think this experience changed Scott’s life, so when he returned home he started Charity, with the idea of using photography and video to connect the needs of the world to the people back home. That’s a really good idea, using things like photography and video to communicate to people in ways that are relevant and meaningful to them. Anyways, from Scott’s former Mercy Ships blog, I think he’s a Christian, though Charity seems to be an intentionally non-Christian/non-religious organization. I’d encourage you to support his initiative, and/or continue exploring how we can be used by God to further His Kingdom here on Earth.
Micah 6:8 (ESV)
He has told you, O man, what is good;
and what does the LORD require of you
but to do justice, and to love kindness,
and to walk humbly with your God?
Hebrews 13:20-21 (ESV)
Now may the God of peace who brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great shepherd of the sheep, by the blood of the eternal covenant, equip you with everything good that you may do his will, working in us that which is pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.
Happy Easter 🙂
