Global Solidarity and
• Global means: The whole World
• Solidarity according to the
means,” Union or fellowship arising from
common responsibilities between people,
groups, etc.
• Development means growing.
• “The test of our progress is not whether we add
to the abundance of those who have much. It is
whether we provide enough to those who have
Franklin D. Roosevelt Quotes
• Therefore, global solidarity and development
means that as children of God we have a duty
towards each other. This duty is to support each
other and be there for each other whether it is
economically, ideologically, or any way
• We as Christians are not only to help each
other out because it is what God wants and we
know that it is the right thing to do, but we are
also to do it because we are all children of God
and care for each other.
Real Life Example:
• Now days, there are many ways in which
people are trying to help each other out
• Whether it is because a country or people
are going through a natural disaster,
governmental problems, war, economical
problems, etc.
The Earthquake in Japan:
• In March, 2011 there was a terrible earthquake
and tsunami that hit the island of Japan. According
to CNN,” The 8.9-magnitude temblor, which was
centered near the east coast of Japan, killed
hundreds of people, caused the formation of 30foot walls of water that swept across rice fields,
engulfed entire towns, dragged houses onto
highways, and tossed cars and boats like toys.
Some waves reached six miles (10 kilometers)
inland in Miyagi Prefecture on Japan's east coast”
• As we have read, things seemed pretty horrible.
• When things like these happen to nations, as it
did to Japan, they need the help of others, and
as human beings this is where we step in.
Japan received so much help during these hard
times for the country.
• Charities, organizations, and companies from
all over the world were donating money,
support, and whatever was needed to Japan.
• Without the help of all these nations, one is to
wonder what Japan would do.
• Global Solidarity is a perfect example of how it is to
be carried out, as it was to Japan.
• We are all children of God, no matter the race, and
imagine how you would feel if you lived in Japan
when this earthquake took place.
• There are two things to take into consideration:
• - WWJD (What would Jesus Do)
• And
• - we are all God’s children, and we love one
another not because it is right but because it is
what we want to do.
• “Great opportunities to help others seldom
come, but small ones surround us every
Sally Koch
• I like this quote because in order to create
global solidarity in the world it does not
have to be something big, but in God’s
eyes it is the thought and motive behind the
gesture, no matter how big or how small.
