Redding Loaves and Fishes is a Ministry of what the world might call "
The least of the brethren". Has the least of the breathren come to our
house lately? Have we unknowingly turned away Angels? Would we be
shocked if we asked the Lord, when did we see you hungry? and He
replied when I was disheveled ,dirty, downtrodden, and knocking at the
doors of your Church?
I still marvel, as I think of visiting my Grandmother in the
retirement home before she died, watching two elderly women across the
hall in wheelchairs. One suffering, crying out loud, tears streaming
down her face, "I want to go home! " , The other woman, with a look of
compassion on her face, handing her the little stuffed animal she was
cradeling in her arms, soothing and comforting her.......can we ever be
retired from loving one another?
Do we really know what the end result of our charitable donations
produces in the north state community? Oh Redding is a very loving and
caring community, but do we "test the fruits"? I challange you to visit
your favorite charity, and see the "end results".
How many of the "least of the brethren" are living in cars? under
bridges? dying from cold, hunger, poverty, and sickness in camps along
the Sacramento river and we never hear about it on the local news or
So Redding Loaves and Fishes appeals to the Christ that dwells in each
and every one of you. "Lord, Lord, we need funds, Lord, Lord, we need
food, Lord, Lord, we need talent, Lord....... we need Love....
So let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall
reap, if we do not loose heart. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let
us do good to all, especially to those of the household of
faith.............even if they are.........the least of the brethren.
