Weekly Reflection

ChildAid helped them smile.

Each week we post a scripture or a quotation we have come across during the week, or a simple prayer that we have reflected upon or that has spoken to us in some way. It may be specific to the needs of our partners or the children, or indeed a request from any of our supporters.

You may wish to use our thoughts or reflections in your prayers for the forgotten children of Eastern Europe. 

“I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary; the evil it does is permanent” Mahatma Gandhi

This week on Twitter I started to list out Gandhi’s Seven Social Sins, or their even better description, the Seven Blunders of the World. They seem such a descriptive overview of our world today (even though they were written back in 1925). Of course there is much good in the world for us to praise and be thankful for but as we at ChildAid work extensively on preparing the launch of a new appeal for children and families in eastern Ukraine it is sometimes hard to see. A prayer perhaps for us to experience more permanent good – however that may manifest itself.
