The standard has been passed to us
In battle when the soldier carrying their country’s flag was killed another soldier would carry that flag, which is also referred to as the standard. The standard has now been passed to us to do the hard roll up our sleeves work for the just world people like Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King, Mother Teresa, Pope John Paul II and Gandhi envisioned.
I dedicate all my heart, mind and soul to be one of the many ambassadors of hope for my community and our world. I pray in some way for the season I am here that after the work the Lord called me to do is done, I will go home to my Father knowing without any doubt, that I made a profound and lasting difference in the lives of many people.
I am nothing more than a sinner saved by God’s amazing grace. I am and always pray I shall remain a servant of my Lord.
Let us start the conversation together how we can bring a truly just society from vision to reality. That is the calling I received in a Korean ambulance over 13 years ago, nearly dying from asthmatic bronchitis. Please listen and act on your Lord’s and Madiba’s call to all of us.
