We often talk about how we are called to be the hands of God in the world.
We talk about how we might follow Jesus’ example in our daily lives; embracing opportunities to serve one another and our greater communities. We strive to understand love as a verb.
Last week, our kindergartners and first graders worked hard to make May Day baskets. This Sunday, they’ll walk a few blocks from church to a nearby senior living cooperative where they’ll deliver the May Day baskets to church members who are residents there. We do this with different groups of kids each season, and highlights are consistently getting to peer into the apartments and visit with the seniors. This is a simple way to begin connections and relationships. It’s a simple way to lead our kids in serving. Taking time to notice one another – to do something special and kind and thoughtful for our neighbors – this is one way we can be God’s hands in the world. We are grateful for teachers who give of their time to help make these experiences possible.
