Christian people live in two different worlds: the world as it is, and the world as God calls it to be.
For that reason, the “outreach” we do through St. Anne’s is about something far greater than civic volunteerism, personal altruism, or simple charity. Christian outreach is about recognizing that God is in the business of healing and reconciling this world, and we are called to be active participants in that healing.
Can we fix everything that’s broken? No. But we can bear witness to God’s love in ways large and small. It begins in our own backyard.
