Article of the Week: How to be the kind of people the world needs right now

Great blog post by Ann Voskamp: how we could get to be the kind of people the world needs right now

Thought-provoking article on an interesting current topic – and a heartwarming story to boot:

“Sometimes the places where we are stretched thin are the thin places where we catch a greater glimpse of God.

And sometimes a kind of miraculous happens when instead of thinking nothing can be done —  you believe there’s always a way one thing can be done.
