Good Deeds in a Weary World: Patrick Stewart and Domestic Violence

Good Deeds in a Weary World: Patrick Stewart and Domestic Violence

At Beyond the Pale I want to celebrate acts of goodness in the world that are bringing life, restoration, and the Kingdom of Heaven to Earth.  In this clip below famed British actor (and Star Trek Captain) Patrick Stewart shares on a very personal level the work he has done to stop domestic violence against women.  It’s a heart felt answer that illicits a very emotional response from the girl asking the question as well as the crowd.

It always brings me back to thoughts of “What does Jesus REALLY care about?”

“Let me give you a new command: Love one another. In the same way I loved you, you love one another. This is how everyone will recognize that you are my disciples—when they see the love you have for each other.”

John 13: 34-35

Or as Willy Wonka would say, “And so shines a good deed in a weary world”

    Powerful, Steve. I grew up in a house where there was domestic violence. When Patrick Stewart said there was nothing he could do to help his mother then when he was a child but that he could help her by taking action now as an adult. That in fact, he could help both of his parents by taking action and speaking out now.

    I think Jesus would like this.

      Thanks Connie! Yes, I’m pretty sure this is what Is important to Jesus!
