You're going to find that there will be times when people will have no stomach for solid teaching, but will fill up on spiritual junk food—catchy opinions that tickle their fancy. They'll turn their backs on truth and chase mirages. But you—keep your eye on what you're doing; accept the hard times along with the good; keep the Message alive; do a thorough job as God's servant. (2 Tim 4:3-5)
a Book thought...
Research done in Australia reveals that young adults view God as something akin to a “cosmic butler” to be called on in times of strife or need, but who then quietly exits so as not to cramp our style. (p113 Sayers)
LOW-income Melbourne suburbs have fewer supermarkets than more affluent areas, making it harder for parents to buy fresh food, research shows.One-third of children in low-income suburbs don't eat enough fruit and more than half don't eat enough vegetables - and they are most likely to have a high number of fast-food outlets and convenience stores near their homes. In richer areas there are more butchers, greengrocers and supermarkets, making access to cheap, fresh food much easier. Those without cars in poorer areas are hardest hit because of limited access to fresh food by public transport and on foot, two Deakin University studies show.
To reverse the trend we must do our best to provide healthier options to all no matter what suburb someone can afford to live in. It would be great to have the funds to set up a chain of healthy fast food stores that you could also drive-through in all the poorer suburbs, like a good Subway that was quick and a few dollars cheaper.
Just a thought.
