During our first year, the Lord progressively revealed the four pillars that He was establishing upon the Isaiah 58 foundation (of compassion).
Note well: Our pillars are not our target groups. They are our mentors in the Kingdom. The Lord esteems those the world and church have regarded as lowly–Isaiah 57:15: For this is what the high and lofty One says— he who lives forever, whose name is holy: “I live in a high and holy place, but also with him who is contrite and lowly in spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly and to revive the heart of the contrite.
1. People with disabilities:
These special friends remind us of the central issue of the kingdom: “Will you love me? Can I love you?”
Jesus taught us that unless we become like children, we cannot even enter the kingdom of heaven.
3. Prodigals coming home
The son / daughter who comes home reminds us that each of us needs fresh mercy every day and that it is always available.
4. The Poor
The poor in body and in spirit teach us about dependence on God and how to be rich in faith.
