To reach the lost with the love of God and the message of Jesus. That through His death on the cross and His resurrection from the dead all may receive eternal life.
Providing food, clothing and shelter for the poor. Offering a place where anyone can come rebuild their broken life and be restored to hope, self-worth and purpose.
This is the kind of fast day I’m after:
to break the chains of injustice,
get rid of exploitation in the workplace,
free the oppressed,
What I’m interested in seeing you do is:
sharing your food with the hungry,
inviting the homeless poor into your homes,
putting clothes on the shivering ill-clad,
being available to your own families.
Do this and the lights will turn on,
and your lives will turn around at once.
Your righteousness will pave your way.
The God of glory will secure your passage.
Isaiah 58:6-8 MSG
