Today at FBC we will gather ’round the Good Samaritan story. It is about love. . .for God and others. It is also about religion. . .its dangerous tendency to become a substitute for compassionate action. Jesus is painfully honest. The person outside “the church” is more conscious of his responsibility to help others than the religious folks.
Day 23 – Will you pray for the Yes Lord! Leaders of FBC?
One of the things that I admire about FBC is the long tradition of compassionate community service. The lay-lead ministry that organizes and enlists our fellowship into this effort is called Yes Lord! Many projects throughout the year. Poverty and Homelessness. Children at Risk. Casseroles for Christ. Meals for Wounded Warriors. Internationals. Disaster Relief. The Directors and I will meet on Sunday afternoon to begin praying and planning for next year. Will you pray for us? Will you pray for Rita Schuetze and Donna Bowman who provide staff leadership? Will you ask Him to guide your own involvement? May the Lord be pleased with us as we “love our neighbors” in His name.
