At the United Methodist-related Dakota Wesleyan University in Mitchell, South Dakota, a state where one of every five children is at risk of going hungry, students and faculty take hunger seriously–both in Mitchell (pop. 14,000) and globally.
Sophomore Ariana Arampatzis told United Methodist Communications writer Crystal Caviness:
“Hunger is a really solvable problem with the right connections and resources.”
But in the big scheme of things, problems like hunger and also homelessness and other social ills require the will of Christians to roll up their sleeves and get down in the trenches with the hungry, the homeless, the poor, the down-and-out.
If only all Christians and churches in America had the will–if only they were willing to make the commitment to solving poverty-related problems in their communities, towns and cities–God knows that those American Christians and churches could move mountains.
Kudos to Dakota Wesleyan University and other schools that obviously have the will and are pushing to find the ways to address hunger.
And by the way–before it was known as Christianity, Christianity was known as “The Way.”
And of course you have heard it said that “where there’s a will there’s a way.”
