I woke up to the most incredible op-ed in the Sun Chronicle this morning.
“The recent front-page story on 5-year-old Bella Kai Rutko of Rehoboth is the kind of uplifting tale that, in an age of dysfunctional governments, self-absorbed celebrities and people more concerned with others than themselves, will make you feel a little better about the human condition.”
Read the whole op-ed here.
I said to Holly & Jeff this morning that – as a pastor – the whole outpouring of love and support through the Wheels for Bella campaign has been so inspirational to me. It is just a reminder that there are good people in this world, that people – deep down – want to make a difference in the world and that living out the Gospel is not about dogmas, rules and old structures, it is about compassion, love and reality.
Thank you to everyone who has supported this campaign. I have been humbled throughout it.
If you are in the area, we are hosting one final event on Saturday at the Seekonk Rod & Gun Club. It starts at 11 – it is a family fun day (bouncy house, touch-a-truck, face painting, photo booth) with food and TONS of great raffles. Check out the Facebook event here.
