What's it all About?
In a world so filled with fear, hatred, indifference and isolation, moments of kindness can impact our hearts deeply.
I remember last year feeling tired and under pressure. Two small children, a third on the way and part way through a house extension that was ripping apart the downstairs of our small home. The phone rang and the friend on the other end asked if he could come round and see me right away. My first reaction was one of anxiety. Something has probably gone wrong or I’d done something to offend him! A few minutes later he arrived and I put the kettle on bracing myself to either apologise or receive bad news; instead he handed me an envelope full of money. My jaw hit the floor.
He explained he had felt God send him my way with the gift. No strings attached. It was a beautiful act of support and kindness from his family to mine.
Finances were desperately tight for us and I was blown away. An undeserved act of kindness.
Inspired by stories like this, we began to dream of what it would look like for us to invite people in our world to demonstrate love to one another in small but significant ways.
Imagine hundreds and even thousands of acts of love and kindness being poured out through you and I. Spontaneous or planned, sometimes practical, always unconditional, generous and unexpected being passed on to others, with the simple invitation to pass on the kindness to someone else.
Imagine us starting a movement where acts of kindness begin to change the world around us.
Imagine a Tsunami of Love.
