Christ Have Mercy: How to Put Your Faith in Action Summary ´ 0 Matthew C. Harrison ¿ 0 Summary Through Scripture study real life experiences and the writings of Lutheran Church Father. Matthew Harrison must be a Lutheran Theodore Roosevelt This book reveals the many sides of his personality interested in every corner of the earth and because of his ministry he has done everything from live with natives in the far north of Canada for a year to throw himself into urban renewal of the neighborhood around his urban congregation to travel the world to assist in relief efforts such as the great Tsunami and Hurricane Katrina a Lutheran historian and first class theologian family man and Each chapter reveals something of the man while taking on a neglected topic from a fresh approachThe book is about mercy Since my work is with people who have disabilities and people in prison or suffering much of what he had to say was directly applicable to why I do what I do Every chapter took a different aspect of church life teaching and showed the role that mercy plays whether the topic is who God is what baptism or the Lord s Supper is the unity of the Christian church suffering confession leadership etc In none of his writings did I sense a boiler plate approach to Christian doctrine He always writes in a fresh heart felt creative manner I have included a uote that really struck me as a fresh statement on the fellowship a family of Christians experiences as they gather around the Lord s SupperHarrison led a corporate effort in mercy ministry as I do but what always interests me is the manifestation of mercy on a private level I have known so many clergymen who contrary to the negative media image today privately give personal support to several needy families or individuals It s not just clergy who are like this of course but I remark on it because in almost all the cases I know of the clergy s personal involvement is unknown to people outside their immediate circle It s as though an awareness of having a ministry by the mercy of God Romans 12 moves these leaders to give tangible assistance in mercy for those around them I think that Harrison exemplifies a healthy Christianity Flowing from Christ mercy is not something we do because we should or to earn God s pleasure or out of a corporate responsibility Mercy is in our hearts It s our response to the mercy in our lives It looks for an outlet And while we can t as individuals supply the needs of the world I find that merciful people find places to be involved It s what I love about my work as I enable prisoners to grow spiritually and find encouragement or make it possible for someone who is blind to have access to spiritual treasures that I enjoy The people I work with will tell you that we all are serving each other the child with autism blesses his family and congregation as much as they bless him When Harrison wrote this book he was not yet president of his denomination the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod At the time of this book he led that church in aid and relief efforts The book was published in July 2008 just as the financial crisis that rocked the mortgage markets affected the money donated for charitable causes Toward the end of the book Harrison s joy in the outpouring of support for his work would probably be tempered today by the cut backs many foundations and donors were forced to do when the economy changed Most of the book can and probably should be read with interest and profit by any Christian as the book comes to an end Harrison is definitely addressing and encouraging the people of his own denomination It did not detract from the thoughts in the book
