What do your kids look at on the church walls?
I grew up at Oxford Terrace what did I look at. No pictures of Jesus, no stories on stained glass windows, no childrens SS work, noBible verses.
Instead there was a huge board with those who died in WW1 and 2 and amoung the smaller ones a plaque to a missionary sent from our church 1890, about. Hopestill Pillow went out to India, then one country to the area of Bramanbaria in the present Bangladesh. She went alone on a long boat trip not expecting to come back for 5 years, She worked with another single woman from Dunedin doing work with women and children in the villages.
She never made it home only to Kolkata where she died in hospital.
We stood by her grave. Would we be willing tto go, no medicine, no rapid escape plan.
A seed falls into the ground and dies but then brings forth much fruit.
What will the fruit be?
