Incarnation

               

Ruth and I went off on some different visits. As you can see I went to a pottery workshop and ended up kidnapping a baby! Fascinating work by a businessman who felt called to work in one of the toughest areas of Kingston - two murders a week and if a man lives until he is 20 he is considered old.

The investment seems to be working and there is a reduction in crime and the hold of the drugs mafia as a result .... he talked a lot about incarnational ministry as if he had invented it, and the Methodist in me wanted to say "John Wesley got that a while ago". But actually, incarnational ministry means a whole lot more if you think you could be shot any moment!

Thought: If we want to stand alongside the poor, then we have to put our bodies where our beliefs are.
