Orthopraxy; correctness or orthodoxy of action or practice.

orthopraxy (ˈɔːθəˌpræksɪ) — n theol the belief that right action is as important as religious faith [from Greek orthos correct + praxis deed, action]

Helping Do, What Matters... Orthopraxy is a term derived from modern Greek ὀρθοπραξία (orthopraxia) meaning "correct action/activity" or an emphasis on conduct, both ethical and liturgical, as opposed to faith or grace etc. This contrasts with orthodoxy, which emphasizes correct belief, and ritualism, the use of rituals. Orthopraxy is focused on issues of family, cultural integrity, the transmission of tradition, sacrificial offerings, concerns of purity, ethical systems, and the enforcement thereof.

IHH - the potato project: A Unique Christian Ministry outreach addressing local hunger issues. All volunteers growing and producing free food, managed from what we have, for local hungry neighbors in need. We grow fresh produce on land given for use, supported by stewardship donations and sustainability cropping, produce harvested by volunteer hands, and distributed freely to local Food Banks, pantries, kitchens, and entities serving those neighbors who find themselves in need. (Greater Berks Food Bank, Second Harvest Food Bank of Lehigh Valley, Chester County Food Bank, and other local qualified concerns.)

Lamentations 4:9; Happier were those pierced by the sword than those pierced by hunger, whose life drains away, deprived of the produce of the field.

Matthew 25:35-46 (NIV) For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink... ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’James 2:14-22 (NIV) Faith and DeedsWhat good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them? Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.But someone will say, “You have faith; I have deeds.”Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by my deeds. You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that - and shudder.You foolish person, do you want evidence that faith without deeds is useless? Was not our father Abraham considered righteous for what he did when he offered his son Isaac on the altar? You see that his faith and his actions were working together, and his faith was made complete by what he did.
