Christian Outreach Project

I just came back from my church retreat, i think i've learned a lot. At the camp we split into groups and each group worked to renovate the house. The homeowners of the houses were usually elderly or disabled. During the week we discussued questions like....

1. If god loves everyone, why are there people that still suffer?

2. Why do some people blame god for problems, but many times don't recognize him for achievements?

3. Why did god create man with free will?

4. Why is there need for fogiveness if God already knows what will happen?

5. What is the meaning of "Grace"?

idk if there are real answers to these questions, but i think they're something to think about.

There was also this hymn we sang, it has an important message and its catchy too :

Listen children to a story that was written long ago
'bout a kingdom on a mountain and the valley folk below.
On the mountain was a treasure buried deep beneath a stone,
and the valley people swore they'd have it for their very own

So the people of the valley sent a message up the hill
asking for the buried treasure, tons of gold for which they'd kill.
Came an answer from the kingdom. "With our brothers we will share all the secreats of our mountain all the riches buried there."

Now the valley cried with anger mount your horses draw your swords and they killed the mountain people so they won their just reward

Now they stood beside the treasure on the mountain, dark and red, turned the stone and looked beneath it. "Peace on earth" was all it said...

if u want the tune to the song here it is:
one tin soldier

"Fear less, hope more;
Whine less, breathe more;
Talk less, say more;
Hate less, love more;
And all good things are yours."

-Sweedish Proverb
