Caring for Claymore

posted Nov 29, 2013, 6:42 PM by Sean Donovan

The title and theme of this year’s Social Justice Statement come from Jesus’ parable of Lazarus, who sits unnoticed at the gate of the rich man.

The “Caring for Claymore” project is your opportunity to respond to the Lazarus at our gate. Contact Paul Whiting on 0407 835 366 to find out more.

Jesus said:

‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance ... For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat ….’

 

Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you …?’”

 

The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ – Mathew 25:34-40

James writes:

What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them? Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead. – James 2:14-17

 Hope you are able to help.
