Comments: Prepare the way of the Lord

I think most people have an awareness of asylum seekers and refugees and so on - but just don't want to get involved. Certainly we see on the television news the awesome numbers of refugees in the world. Listening to the news you sometimes hear an resentment expressed - against the 'bad guys' who abuse the hospitality of the asylum givers. I also think there's an element of 'burn out' affecting people's attitudes - or fatigue, even, folks just getting tired of always hearing the depressing statistics. My answer is usually, 'well, then, why not do something about it?' and usually I get a stare and then the person turns and walks away. Sigh.
