Here’s something you probably won’t hear in the news. Last week, Churches of all stripes and denominations came together to love on the Atlantic Provinces. There were Wesleyans, Baptists, Pentecostals, Catholics, and everything in between.
The collective efforts of these churches represented hundreds of thousands of dollars and thousands of volunteer hours. Coffee was poured, schools were cleaned up, the poor were fed, and clothing was given away. And yet, it was completely ignored by the mainstream media.
I’m not sure if it’s because good news doesn’t sell or if it just didn’t fit the media’s narrative of what the church is and does.
And I was neither disappointed nor dismayed. I just found it interesting.
And while Love Atlantic is called a week of radical generosity, it doesn’t end there. Churches across Halifax, Nova Scotia, the Atlantic Provinces, Canada and around the world make a difference every day in the lives of the less fortunate.
And we don’t do it for media hype. We do it because we have been called to make a difference. And regardless of what you might be led to believe, the world would be a darker place today without the light of the church.

Have a great week, and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
