Writers Needed:To Share Truth & Hope



These are just a few chairs where they sat.
Intelligent thinkers
And gifted writers,
With a  love for God and their fellow man.
A solid faith.
Burdened for a hurting world--
A distracted church.
Many needs--
And all needing hope.
A common thread woven
Throughout the conversation--
Everybody's busy.
But--
Are we too busy to write?
Financial problems
Families struggling
A government no longer listening to the people--
Books, books, books
And many filled with fluff.
Where is hope, light and truth?
And where are the writers?
Others before us have seen and written.
C.S. Lewis
Since Christians have largely ceased to think of the other world
They have become so ineffective in this world.
--C.S. Lewis
"The ultimate test of a moral society is the kind of world that it leaves to its children."
 --Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Writers are needed.
With "eyes to see and ears to hear"
We can write:
Emails
Letters
Articles
Books
Post on Facebook
And share on Twitter.
Truth
Light
And hope are needed.

"God doesn't call the equipped; He equips the called."
           --Anonymous
************************
Have a joy-filled week and let's write--
Sharing truth and hope
And letting God's love shine through us.

Yes, indeed, and Amen. Referring to what C. S. Lewis said, we need to leave a legacy of godliness for our next generation. We need to refute the awful messages of the world that our young people are being inundated with.I feel a sense of urgency to "declare the praises of Him who called us out of darkness into His wonderful light." (1 Pet. 2:9)
