BRINGING RELIEF, JUSTICE AND PEACE TO THE FORGOTTEN OF THE WORLD
THERE HAS BEEN NO JUSTICE IN THE STATE OF IOWA FOR MY FAMILY

JESUS WANTS US TO CARE FOR ONE ANOTHER AND HAVE COMPASSION FOR ONE ANOTHER, NOT "HELP OURSELVES"

I WAS THINKING THIS AFTERNOON HOW INSTEAD OF "SELF-HELP" BOOKS WE NEED "OTHER-HELP" BOOKS THAT TEACH US ABOUT HELPING OTHER PEOPLE IN THEIR TIMES OF NEED AND SUFFERING. "SELF-HELP" BOOKS ARE BASED ON AMERICAN INDIVIDUALISM AND THE "PULL YOURSELF UP BY THE BOOTSTRAPS" MENTALITY THAT IS NOT OFTEN A REALITY NOR POSSIBILITY FOR MANY PEOPLE WITHOUT THE RESOURCES TO HELP THEMSELVES -- AND NOT FOLLOWING JESUS' COMMANDMENT THAT WE CARE FOR ONE ANOTHER. "OTHER-HELP" BOOKS WOULD TEACH US/PEOPLE TO MINISTER TO AND SUPPORT EACH OTHER IN OUR TIMES OF NEED. THE ONLY THING THAT SELF-HELP BOOKS HELP ARE THE POCKETBOOKS OF THEIR AUTHORS BECAUSE WE DON'T NEED SELF-HELP BOOKS IN A CULTURE WHERE PEOPLE CARE FOR ONE ANOTHER AND TAKE CARE OF EACH OTHER WHEN WE ARE SUFFERING AND HURTING. SIMPLY PUT, "SELF-HELP" BOOKS ARE THE ANTITHESIS OF WHAT JESUS IS ALL ABOUT AND HIS CARE AND CONCERN FOR ALL OF US AND HIS COMPASSIONATE AND LOVING WILL THAT WE CARE FOR AND SUPPORT ONE ANOTHER IN OUR TIMES OF NEED. IN JESUS' BEAUTIFUL, LOVING AND HOLY NAME. LOVE ALWAYS, DIANE
