Call To Service

God’s transforming Word opens our ears to hear God and also opens our eyes to see our neighbors.  When our ears are opened, we can hear the cry of God’s people in need and when our eyes are opened we see more clearly the needs of those around us. 

The Lenten journey is a call to service as we respond to God’s love by performing acts of Christian service and compassion to our neighbor and by working for justice on behalf of the marginalized.

In what ways might you be called to respond to God’s love through your gifts?  Visit with the sick?  The lonely?  Offer a smile?  Extend a hand of friendship?  Feed the hungry?  Find a way to serve the homeless?

Praying the Word of God will lead you to see and to respond.
