We need to respond with the values that we see in Jesus Christ’s life.
Why is there no room for God in our society?
One of the lands most neglected by missions is still ours! I am shocked when I go into a shop by the lack of the presence of God.
‘That’s how it is! We don’t sell either music or books about him! It’s always been like that!’
Is that a reason for thinking it’s alright? There are absolutely thousands of philosophies and beliefs (for example: astrology, stories about magicians and trolls) ... Why is there no room for God in our society?
Okay, it’s true, there is the vegetable aisle: someone could be deeply moved observing the beauty of creation in a cabbage leaf... then again... as things stand, I haven’t seen many conversations in the vegetable aisle.

Following a fight worthy of a ninja-lion to get my comic books out there, which resulted in the beginning of a victory (OK, it’s true, they’re only there when they are first published... ah well),
I was coming back from a tour at the end of the week in the schools of Valais to share my testimony, as well as to use some of my weekend to lead a restaurant-church (brunch worship, if you prefer). People eat while you talk.
Anyway, after all of that, God told me (through someone else - it wasn’t by phone this time) that, even if I didn’t do any of all those things at all, if I was just myself, he loved me.
I know, it’s so simple...but, as for me, it made me cry.
