"I also have to do something" - A Reflection from a Christian Base Community in Nicaragua

“I have a lot of faith in God so I pray that God will keep this project going. But I can’t just pray; I also have to do something.” Doña Socorro, the woman who shared with me this insight, is the coordinator of a daycare for children of low-income parents who work outside the home. The project is one of many carried out by a Christian base community in Nicaragua.

“During Reagan’s war [the Contra War] 50,000 young people were killed.  They were carried away from their families and off to the war in military trucks, stuffed full.  They say Reagan died of cancer…he deserved it.”

Scripture Reflection for the Eighteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time (August 5, 2012)

August 2, 2012
God calls me through others for others. Deceivingly simple, this statement captures Edward Hahnenberg’s theology of vocation as developed in his book Awakening Vocation: A Theology of Christian Call. Written for those with a privileged place in the world, Dr. Hahnenberg offers a modern theology of vocation based on a spirit of solidarity, patiently laying out an understanding of vocation that is both incredibly challenging and undoubtedly hopeful.
