Do your little bit of good where you are; it’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.Desmond Tutu Emeritus Archbishop of Capetown and Nobel Peace Prize Winner
Archbishop Tutu has a way of getting to the heart of the matter. He is a man who faced the harsh and brutal realities of apartheid in South Africa head on. He is also a man who in picture after picture is smiling. Tutu seems to live with a kind of deep and abiding joy that can only be described as Holy. Last week, on facebook (of all places!), I saw a post of one of his more memorable quotes: “Do your little bit of good where you are; it’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.” What I love about this quote is that Tutu, a man who has been involved in remarkable world-changing events, is encouraging us to recognize that changing the world is not only about grand gestures. Moreover, he is suggesting that every grand gesture is really the sum of many smaller ones.
And in a way, this is the story of the Church. People called to do their little bits of God where they are and in the ways they can so that together we might help the kingdom come.
Do you ever have doubts about your faith? Do you doubt that you can "see" or "hear" God? It's been said that doubt is essential to faith, and that growing our faith is a continual act of questioning and struggle. If you'd like to explore this topic, you can do so by viewing Lesley Hazelton's 15 minutes presentation, "The Doubt Essential to Faith" by clicking on the video
We invite your comments and thoughts, and there will be two ways to discuss with others: After the 5:00 p.m. service on Saturday, May 16th, or between services at 9:00 a.m. on Sunday, May 17th, we'll gather to discuss what made an impression on us as we watched Lesley's talk, or share questions that were sparked by the video OR chat online with others using the Trinity Facebook page. Transcript of the video is available at TED Talk
