Thought for the Week

Few of us like to be unpopular or stand up & be counted,

even when principles are at stake

& our voice needs to be heard.

We are part of the silent majority

lacking moral the moral courage to speak out.


As followers of Christ, we have to face the fact

that sometimes conflict & tension are unavoidable.

He never promised that our journey would be without its crosses.

They are the inevitable part of being a Christian.
