In First Samuel, Chapter 17, we are told the story of the
shepherd boy facing off against the giant, Goliath.
Instead of fighting Goliath with sword and armor, David chose the weapon
he knew and picked out 5 smooth stones for his sling.
Though 5 stones were chosen, David needed only one.
We believe the Second Stone was meant for us to use.
We have a responsibility to face the Goliaths of our time and to take up the weapons
we have been given to fight poverty, hunger, and injustice wherever and however we can.
It's time to take up our own sling and stone.
What we do.
The need in India is constant and growing. Along with our brothers and sisters on the ground, Second Stone supports orphans, widows, and lepers in a variety of ways; from food, to outreach, to housing, to education.
And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Truly I say to you,
to the extent that you did it for one of the least of these
brothers or sisters of Mine, you did it for Me.’
