I don’t know that I was necessarily getting the message our pastor had hoped, but to me it came down to this…look what we can do if we all join together in a common cause to make the world a better, safer and healthier place. To me, it was the message that we have been realizing through Rotary and our End Polio Now campaign for the last few years. It really is amazing what the power of one can do. No matter who or what your higher power may be, no matter what your belief system, no matter what your socio-economic status….if we all work together we can accomplish amazing things.
As I was sitting in church on Sunday, listening to the sermon, my thoughts kept turning to Rotary. The sermon was on the “Mighty God” portion of the scripture from Isiah…Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God…you know the rest and it was entwined with a message of our churches undertaking of a project to end malaria, called Imagine No Malaria.
