Teach Compassion and Reach Out to those with Health Problems
As it happens, we have been learning the story of Jesus calming the sea as our rotation. On Sunday, our pastor changed her already prepared sermon to preach on this text and spoke about love casting out fear. We are sharing ways for families to show love that casts out fear to the world by:
- Purchasing bags of food for an emergency food bank for kids in our area who depend on school breakfasts and lunches
- Asking children at home make cards for people who are isolated in assisted living or elsewhere
- Opening a room of books we have to stock Little Free Libraries to families who want to pick up reading material (because our libraries are closed), by offering to run errands for those at risk.
I'd love to learn how others are supporting families at home in these unprecedented times. This seems like a whole culture shift, and we need to share ideas for navigating these waters now and in the future.
