Who Can You Turn To?

I would like to invite you to imagine with me for a few minutes

Imagine yourself sitting in your home at the breakfast table, you have just spent the last 20 mins looking every where for the milk carton, only to have found it in the bottom rack of the dishwasher along with the peanut butter

Imagine, looking across the dinner table at the love of your life only you don’t realize this person is the love of your life and you think this is a complete stranger at your table and you are scared beyond scared

Now imagine even further

You are sitting in the doctors office, your doctor is moving his or her lips but you can’t make out what he or she is saying because all you can remember is that the doctor told you you have cancer of the bowel which has spread —– did he say to the lungs or the liver? You have to get up and leave but you aren’t sure you can put one foot in front of the other. You somehow manage to get home and you don’t know what to tell your family because you didn’t hear what the doctor said and now your not even sure that what you did hear was right.

Who can you turn to???

Is your church family equipped to walk along side those experiencing these all to common scenarios?  Do your parishioners know that their church family is there for them?  How does the church become more relevant to people in their communities?

Times are a changing.

The health care system is bursting at the seams, families are dispersed across the globe, immigrants are standing in line at the Canadian border.

Is your church equipped and intentional about caring for brothers and sisters in need?  Whatever that need may look like.

I challenge you to be the hands and feet of Jesus, through intentional care, and show the world who we can always turn to!
