home sweet home?

We made it home. 20+ hours of flying...3 continents...layovers, security checks, customs...all done. Made it home. Yet arriving home has never been so unsatisfying. As my wife pointed out, while a good portion of the world is starving...underfed, under educated, and under everyone's radar, Americans are mowing their grass...not just mowing, but planting grass seed...micrale gro...while people are dying, our soil looks lush.

The culture shock of going from extreme poverty to extreme luxury is not lost on me.

What does it look like for the church to be the solution rather than part of the problem?
