‘”And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this, Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.”
Science and faith agree – all living things spring from the same primordial makeup. We originated together. We are all connected: each of us is a uniquely wonderful, gloriously imperfect reflection of God. We’re family.
So, if our relatives are hungry or thirsty, we fix them a meal. If our child is ill, we take her to the doctor. If our brother is homeless, we help him find a place to stay and, perhaps, a job – whatever it takes to get him back on his feet.
When we feed someone who is hungry, console someone who is grieving, spend time with someone who is lonely, and share any of the abundance that surrounds each of us, what happens? We give and receive joy. Respect. Appreciation. Connection. Presence. Peace. The soul-deep serenity born of the knowledge that someone’s day is happier. That selfless happiness which is the God connection.
If this resonates, take a look at the many ministries in which our active Outreach team engages, including:
- The Douglas/Elbert Task Force.
- The Crisis Center.
- Support for the elderly among us.
- Serving at St. Clare’s Table.
So many more.
Perhaps you’ll find one that calls to you – and you will discover anew that you truly are blessed to be a blessing to others. Give us a call at 303.688.5185. Let’s connect and share our gifts.
