Today, May 21, is the Global Day of Prayer to End Famine. Hungry people in East Africa are our neighbors in the eyes of God, and Jesus calls us to love them in the same way we love God and ourselves (Matthew 22:39, Mark 12:31).
Our president Rich Stearns explains how we can be in fellowship with them in their suffering.
Two years ago this month, I attended a service at All Saints Anglican Church in Juba, South Sudan. The sermon was about unity, a fitting message on the Sunday after Pentecost. The service concluded with everybody turning to their neighbors, grasping hands, locking eyes, and saying, “I promise to be in fellowship with you.”
