Scripture encourages all of us to be quick to listen and slow to anger. This is a principle missing in the young people growing up in the inner city communities of Nashville. We are seeing and experiencing more and more anger - a signature result of a child growing up without a father and mother involved in their life convincing them that they're loved. But, with your help, we are making strides in defusing the anger.
That anger is being replaced with joy-filled relationships that you make it possible for us to establish. However, our most successful relationship builders are not masters of social culture or warehouses of great wisdom. They simply laugh, listen, encourage and empower. Some of our best mentors are still living in the inner city and you enable us to equip these leaders.
By investing in people, local businesses are providing outings, our volunteers are providing transportation, we are providing the kids and mentors are creating positive change across the city. The community we have built is working together to heal the hurt.
Please remember Nashville Inner City Ministry as you plan your end of the year charitable tax donations. We have impacted thousands of lives, but so many more are in need of someone to care. I hope you'll find a way to invest in us as we invest in people and help bring healing to a hurting community.
