Resurrection: New Life and Social Justice

All this week, I am posting prayers about social justice.

So here is the question for the day: So, if we have received new life in the resurrection, aren't we supposed to work toward doing life-giving work in the world? Or is it every man/woman/child for him/herself and let God take care of things?

And if the answer is yes, we are supposed to do life-giving work in the world, which I believe is true based on the scriptures and our Prayer Book prayers that spell out Anglican theology, then does everyone have to become Mother Teresa or Saint Francis to do God's work in the world? How does one discern what one is called to do to give life to others?

Discuss amongst yourselves. I'd love to hear your thoughts.
