Holy Hearts and Helping Hands
As the Three Holy Days begin, I am reminded of the words of Jesus as he shared life with the disciples at that last Passover meal — “Whenever you do this, do this for the remembrance of me.” This is the way we live our Christian faith in the world, bearing the love & compassion of Christ through our sharing with those whose needs are greater.
The needs of many in our area are served through wonderful ministries and programs. I continue to receive requests for help in numerous ways that my discretionary funds often cannot cover. I ask your prayers and help in purchasing gift cards that could help provide a tank of gas, or buy some needed grocery staples at a local store, or shop for basic clothing needs at a local Kmart or other store in the area. This is a wonderful way to meet the needs of others in these economically challenging times. You can place them in the offering basin in an envelope marked for Adele Meredith, or you can drop them by her office during the week, Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Thank you for your prayerfulness in considering a way to help those whose needs are greater than ours through the holidays.
Grateful always, your servant in Christ,
