The Example of How to Live Empty 

Right from the jump. Thank You Veterans! For everything!

Veterans serve. They sacrifice. They are an example of how to Live Empty. 

The fundamental purpose of Empty Church is to encourage people to live empty - that is, to give time, energy, skills, and ideas to make this world what it ought to be. 

I can think of no better example than the men and women who gave up safety, security, and leisure to fight for a world that ought to be. Some had no choice but they chose bravery anyway. Others chose because they believed in something. In a very specific way Veterans have taught us that the necessary thing to do necessitates someone doing it. 

Veterans have taught us that the necessary thing to do necessitates someone doing it.

I can only hope that we as citizens can take on this attitude when it comes to other battles that we face. Let me be clear, it is necessary that sex trafficking and slavery be stopped. It is necessary that children are protected against the litany of injustices they face every day. It is necessary that the poor and needy, the orphans, the widows and the down trodden be attended to. 

It is necessary that someone do this. 

Will you answer the call like our veterans did? Will you live empty?
