We just had another community Christmas project in the community that I serve. The goal is to give a gift for anyone within the county that qualifies through human services or is recommended by an area clergy. People are able to come to a building in town on a selected day and gather items like sweaters, t-shirts, jeans, blankets, bath towels, kitchen towels, games, toys, etc. It is sponsored through our ministerial association. 720 residents within the county received a gift in 2016 and this year it was probably about the same or more. I have not had the opportunity to experience this first hand, but hopefully in the future. This is just one of many stories about tending to people in need and you can probably think of many more.
Let us pray,
Stir up the power of your Holy Spirit and come, Lord Jesus. Help us to see people that are in need and open us up to a world that is truly in need of your coming. Amen.
- How might you care for somebody in need?
- Where do you see God at work in times of great need?
