Lent Photo Day 4: Injustice

Day 4: Injustice. Dunking Out Malaria at St. James UMC Upward.
Today's photo started out being difficult.

I mean, I live in the first world, and by many standards, in a pretty WASP part of Little Rock.

Not much injustice in my "everyday" life.

Then I started thinking about things I'm trying to teach the tweens (and other students) in the children's ministry.

To think of others - instead of themselves.

Several ideas poured into my brain, but the one that stuck out, is this "set" of photos.

It shows one of my kidlets "dunking" change into the basket - to "Dunk Out" Malaria. It's part of the Imagine No Malaria awareness/campaign we added to Upward this year.

You can see some more images from today here:

$10 saves 1 life.

Isn't a life worth that?

Think about it this way.

You can spend $10 at Starbucks (my vice) or McDonalds or... (insert favorite vice) or the same $10 and save a life.

Which lives out the intent of this verse:
No, O people, the Lord has told you what is good, and this is what he requires of you: to do what is right, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God. (Micah 6:8 NLT)

Just something to think about this Lenten season.
