Albert Schweitzer once said, “The purpose of human life is to show compassion, and the will to help others.” This is something every volunteer knows, and they show it! Our compassion runs deep. You see it in the volunteers who are taking time to serve potlucks and clean up afterwards. You see it with the volunteers who come in helping with the kids. You see it when there’s a need to fill the Community Cupboard, or a church member is in the hospital or stuck at home.
We show our compassion when we see a need and fill that need. Norma Vinson showed that compassion when she stepped behind the coffee bar and started serving because I had stepped away. Sue Baggett-Spears, Mary Hilsabeck-Huber, and Paula Armknecht have also stepped into service at the coffee bar when they saw no one was there. Brenda Chism shows that compassion when she sees that we have a maintenance need. She jumps into service to make any repairs she can. What needs do you see around our church? Is this a need you could fill? Let’s make this our Volunteer motto: See a need, fill a need. There will always be a need for volunteers! Will you show compassion by filling the need?
Blessings in service,
