Dr. Gary Morsch, founding donor of Trevecca’s J.V. Morsch Center for Social Justice, spoke on “The Power of Serving Others, You Can Start Where You Are” at the Compassion & Justice Conference on campus Thursday.

He posed the question, “so what do I do now?” to the audience in the conference, exploring the ideas of how we can exhibit justice to a world corrupted by injustice.

“We have to know the mission,” said Morsch. As the church, we have to learn and understand what our mission is as believers, as a church, as a university. We are all called to the ministry.

“In my day, I thought ministry was for professionals. I thought it was for the pastors and the teachers,” said Morsch. But we are all equipped as Christians to minister on a daily basis.

Morsch said that we have to think global, but act locally. We can look ahead to the world and other countries, but understanding the need in our own communities is just as crucial.

Morsch is the son of J.V. Morsch, the namesake of our social justice center, and Dr. Gary Morsch shined a light on his father’s ministry to local communities in need when he was a young man.

Morsch quoted former Trevecca president Mark Moore, saying, “Do what you can with what you have where you are.” And Morsch added an ending word: “Now.”

I dream to become a doctor. I have many dreams in my life. I motivated by a Korean drama. I love watching drama. It’s entitled “doctors”. It’s already out so I have to watch it. I really like this drama. I've never seen a girl play a tough character or a doctor. It's different and I like it. She really kicked ass at the beginning of the episode. And the guy is playing another tough character. It reminds me of the character he played in Angry Mom at the beginning of the drama. And that puppy she was sleeping with was so cute. I couldn’t help myself and I watched the first episode and now I’m hooked and really need the next episode.

Each of us had missions to do in our entire life. That's why it is wrong to say that you have no use in this world. There's a reason why we are living today. For me, the reason why we lived is to become a blessing for others. This post makes me inspired to live.

Instagram is one of the most recent social media networks and has become very popular in its short existence. While there are many reasons to join Instagram one of the main reasons I go back everyday is for the unintentional comedy.

So how do you market your business on Instagram? There are so many businesses that market their business on Instagram by sharing informative, engaging or funny images and videos with their followers. It's a great strategy for businesses because Instagram has more than 300 million engaged and super targetable users.
