Real help for real life: We only have two things we can do



Anthony Marciano

This is Friday morning; 8:05 And I’m in the salvation section of the church. I asked the men, “If you are asked to do 100 things in 8 hours and only do half of them, should your advisor write them?” Half said yes and half said no.

“Let’s split it in half and do fifty things, and you’re only doing twenty-five. Should you write “Other people said,” Yes. ”

I cut it further. “What if I give you twenty things to do?” “What about ten things?” Men thought that more men should be punished.

“Let me split that into two things. You do one thing with your passion. You do it perfectly. Another who doesn’t bother you and completely ignores you. Should you write “The man said,” This is a difficult question. “He was right.

She said, “There are two things God offers us. He asks us to love God and to love others. We are really good at loving God with all our heart and soul. We cannot love people who are different from us. ”

A 2000 study found that Charlotte was the second of forty cities that went to church and thirty-eight of forty cities with ethnic trust. A recent study found that Charlotte is 50th out of fifty cities when it comes to overcoming poverty when it arises in poverty. Sweat is one of several major factors that cause this problem.


The recent death of Keith Lamont Scott and subsequent demonstrations show that racial issues are still relevant in our society. What do we do as a society to make progress?

In 2007, she was invited to take part in a series on sweat control. Each participant was asked to complete the project. My late Joe Martin project is Race Day. Friday was called friends.

Friday friends ask you to eat or drink coffee with the same person of the opposite sex for six consecutive weeks on Friday. At each meeting, consider the following six questions during your stay together:

  1. Tell me about yourself – Where did you grow up, your hobbies, interest, earliest memory, favorite memory by age 12? Was diversity a pivotal part of your upbringing?
  1. How were you raised to see other races? What did your past (parents, family, life experience) teach you (said or unsaid) about people of different colors?  When did you become aware of the matter of race?
  1. What would you like someone of a different race to know about your world today? How have you historically viewed people of different races?
  1. What does a society of healthy race relations look like?
  1. What specific actions can we take to address racial tension?
  1. What have you learned about the other race you didn’t know six weeks ago?  Would you be willing to tell the story of the other person’s race to people of your own race?


I learned a lot from Mike, who is my friend on Friday. His parents were raised in college; Mine never graduated from high school. As a child he didn’t watch TV; I’ve been watching it all the time. He and his wife are interested in having children for this community. My wife and I have never shared this concern.

What is preventing you from meeting friends on Friday on Friday? I’m not naive to believe that friends will solve all of our ethnic problems on Friday, but we have to fight racism in our society. John 4:20 says, “Whoever claims to love God and hate a false brother or sister. For whoever does not love his brother and sister who saw him cannot love God whom they have not seen. ”
