Everlasting Debtors

June 19th, 2010 by Thalia Kehoe Rowden

Martin Luther King Jr wrote this in Strength to Love:

We are everlasting debtors to known and unknown men and women…. When we arise in the morning, we go into the bathroom where we reach for a sponge provided for us by a Pacific Islander. We reach for soap that is created for us by a Frenchman. The towel is provided by a Turk. Then at the table we drink coffee which is provided for us by a South American, or tea by a Chinese, or cocoa by a West African. Before we leave for our jobs, we are beholden to more than half the world.

Tomorrow morning, as we finish our period of Prayer and Self-Denial for tranzsend, the Baptist overseas mission organisation, we’ll be exploring global partnerships like those Dr King was pondering a few decades ago. Have a sneak peek at Acts 11:19-30 before you come, if you like.
