We all know that there are effects from what we eat on our physical bodies - even though we wish that wasn't the case! Just like our physical bodies, what we feed on spiritually will shape our lives and our relationship with Christ. What are we feeding on? The Bread of Life and His truth or the feast the world sets before us? Both have the power to transform us but only one can shape us into the likeness of Christ.
As part of the Church, we are brothers and sisters to our fellow believers who are suffering persecution around the globe as a result of putting their faith in Jesus Christ. Our awareness of who they are, how they are suffering and what we can do through support them through prayer and action is vital to the Church's survival around the globe.
