Millard Fuller, the founder and former President of Habitat for Humanity preached at Bel Air Presbyterian Church yesterday. What an amazing man. What an amazing story.
I co-led a team of 17 people to Norther Ireland in the summer of 2003, to work with Habitat for Humanity Northern Ireland. What an amazing trip. Protestants and Catholics, from Los Angeles, going over to Northern Ireland, to build a home together. What a statement that was as Protestants and Catholics from Los Angeles, working with Protestants and Catholics in their neighborhoods. Millard Fuller was able to find a way that brought people together, and glorified God, in something as simple as building a house.
It is great to hear someone preach, and to see the fruition of their decision to give everything over to God. Habitat seems to be a statement of this.
