What We Need.

Political activity and charity work concentrate on supplying people's material needs.

While this is important we should not overlook people's spiritual needs.

This is where the philosophy of unconditional love comes into its own.

St. Paul said, "If I give away all my possessions, and I hand over my body so that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing."  1 Corinthians 13:3 (NRSV)

People need food and shelter to survive.

What people need to live is love.
