"Life's short. Create something." - Anonymous
We live in a world where we are bombarded with unimaginable amounts of information. Our ability to process this information is what helps us make sense of the world we live in. The more we interact with the world arond us, the more we are able to create mental categories to help us classify life experience as significant and meaningful.
Unfortunately, as time moves forward, we sometimes get bogged down in the transfer rate of information, leading to confusion, apprehension, and disillusionment.
Sometimes we suffer from sensory-overload, and the world around us ceases to be available to our imagination, and we feel cut off, disconnected, and disjointed from the world. At the same time, never has there been an opportunity for people to stand up for what they believe in; to stand with the poorest of the poor and to create what Nobel Prize winner Muhammad Yunus called a "poverty museum."
Imagine walking through a museum that chronicles the way human beings once treated other human beings, and the cruel and inhumane ways that some were allowed to live so that others could prosper. Imagine saying - "I remember when the world was divided between the haves and have nots."
We stand on the precipice of something magnficient that spans the globe. People standing up for the powerless, listening to the voice of wisdom from the poorest of the world's poor. It's happening everywhere.
We feel God calling us to a very specific people and place in the midst of "everywhere."
God is calling us to Haiti.
We believe we are participating in history, whether we choose to or not. We choose to act. We will not sit on the sidelines of human history while more than 1/3 of the world's population struggles to live on less than $2 a day.
We are getting involved.
We'd like to invite you to join the HTF movement to stand with the poorest of the poor in Haiti. Click on "Getting Involved" below. View it. Download it. Allow yourself to dream of a world where creating a poverty museum is a reality.
