All the Poor and Powerless

Today’s post is a simple one. I don’t have any thesis or flowery words. I simply want to share a series of videos with you and make a request of you: Watch the videos and share this post and reblog it whatever way you can. These three videos are another series from VICE entitled “The Vicar of Baghdad,” and it shows an Anglican priest doing miraculous and brave work in the worst parts of Baghdad, Iraq. The raw beauty of this priest’s love and compassion and faithfulness to the gospel is moving beyond words. I simply ask that you take some time to watch these videos and see the love of Christ being played out in ways that are rarely seen in the media or even from VICE for that matter. And share, please, please, please share these videos and enjoy.

“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world” (James 1:27).
