Sheila Walsh meets Bono

from the Sheila Walsh Newsletter of 11th May 2006

Last Friday, Mary Graham, Luci Swindoll and I drove to a wonderful, old hotel in downtown Dallas to meet with an amazing man - Bono, the lead singer from U2.

For some time Luci has been involved with DATA (Debt, Trade, Aids, Africa) an organization started by Bono. Their new campaign is The One Campaign. This is an effort to rally Americans one by one to fight global AIDS and extreme poverty.

We had an amazing afternoon as he shared his passion to be involved with the things that God cares about. He told us,
"Some time ago a pastor friend of mine told me to stop asking God to bless my projects and to join in with what God is doing for it is already blessed."
What a call for all of us.

This is a God-given opportunity for the Church to be out front in leading the fight against the things that break the heart of God.

You can go to www.one.org and sign the petition and order the ONE armbands. I'm ordering them for all my friends and for Christian's school. We can make a difference. We can be known not as those who stand against so many issues but as those who love in Jesus name. Please sign up today and pass this on to your friends.
