What is needed in our world is a flow of goodwill and action to areas of need.

"and it was distributed to each as any had need,"  Acts 4:35 (NRSV)

This applies to money, resources, personal presence, and support.

What is stopping us from doing this?

The answer is: we have closed our hearts to people in need.

Fear causes us to harden our hearts.

"There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear,"  1 John 4:18 (NRSV)

Were we able to overcome our fears and open our hearts the world would be a different place.

As water flows around obstacles and barriers so our love must flow to all those in need.
