All we can

06 Jul

Many years ago one Mr Wesley – some time fellow of Lincoln College – made, or we think he did the following statement:

“Do all the good you can. By all the means you can. In all the ways you can. In all the places you can. At all the times you can. To all the people you can. As long as ever you can.”

and from this what was know as “The Methodist Relief and Development Fund”, became in 2014, “All we can: Methodist Relief and Development“, so here is a reflection upon the work they do:

All we can

Doing things

that need to be done.

Being in places

where there is a need to be.

Thinking of issues

for which there needs to be thought.

Acting in ways

and at the time to act.

For people, places,

means and actions,

all we can.
