Red Letters: Living a Faith that Bleeds
Tom Davis, author of Red Letters, shares these words: “Every time I go into a community to offer help, I take with me little more than a sincere desire to do whatever is needed. I go with the expectation that I will leave a little of my money, my time–a little of myself–with people who need it more than I do. I don’t do this to get anything in return–I do it because it delights God” ( p. 96).
As you think about the mission imperative given by Jesus, I would highly recommend Red Letters (click here to order the book). Tom has a focus on the orphans and aids children of Africa. As a Wesleyan I am very interested in his references to Swaziland, where we have missionaries doing ministry.
