Hunger QOTD: Art Simon on the Kingdom of God
Pat Brandenburg, a Bread for the World activist, endured a difficult marriage with an alcoholic husband, and she buried both of her children -- Barry, who was killed at age 24 by a man who ran a red light, and Bradley, who died from complications of muscular dystrophy when he was 46. These were crushing blows. Even though Pat has health limitations, she keeps busy assisting destitute immigrants, cooking for hungry people, praying for others, and helping in a host of ways. "I don't spend much time feeling sorry for myself," she told me. "God has given me a lot of love and strength and there's too much that needs to be done." She participates already in the kingdom for which she longs.
--Art Simon, Rediscovering the Lord's Prayer.
