I offer my service to people in need.

In our increasingly interconnected world, there is a vast spectrum of experiences at any given moment.

We are all part of the human family, and when our brothers and sisters suffer, we suffer as well. What affects one family member affects us all.

If we are unsure about how to help someone in need, we look to God for guidance.

We might be called to volunteer at a local nursing home, donate books to a library, mentor school children or send money to a worthy charity.

We choose activities that resonate with our hearts and match our talents and resources.

Today we begin the cycle of giving. Serving fellow members of our human family brings joy and fulfillment, for we know we are participating in truly sacred work.

This is the message you have heard from the beginning, that we should love one another.--1 John 3:11
