Others are headed off to sponsor, volunteer and run in fundraising races, serve meals to the homeless, gather needed supplies for transitional living programs, sort food at local food banks, and pack food for shipment to folks dealing with flood, famine, civil war, earthquakes and many other disasters of nature and mankind around the world.
These folks give a bit of their time and sometimes some of their own funds to support activities that leave them tired, but also renewed. This must be true because the sea of volunteers keep coming back, often bringing family and friends to share the work and the fun and the blessings.
Some of us become passionate about a single area of ministry and others sign up whenever the opportunity presents itself. All are a blessing and part of a safety net that, though imperfect in human terms, offers various moments of mercy and grace to folks that many times we would prefer to forget exist because their burdens are great. We cannot solve their problems, but we can make a difference.
Won't you come join the fun? Won't you consider being a blessing and being blessed in this way?
