God often does much with little. These Kenyan pastors don’t see all the resources that are lacking. They see their own bodies and energies, and have plans to do more with the resources within themselves than many of us do with the luxuries in our culture.
I am not my child’s savior. We all know this, but saying my child is especially lucky or blessed introduces a “saving” dynamic. Despite the commitment I made and continue to make to him, we are just two broken people working out what it means to live in the community and family God has given us. We’re learning together how to love one another and love Jesus. And it’s often an awkward dance.
