In Eastern traditions, giving and receiving are considered two sided of the same coin. When one gives they also receive, and when one graciously receives, they also give.
If we follow the example of Jesus, we will do whatever we can to care for one another and serve those who are in need.
As a community of Jesus’ followers, we can accomplish more together than we can individually. Whether tending to the needs of our own congregation, or extending our resources to address the plight of the poor, we combine our efforts to achieve maximum results.
We have in place, and are developing programs that can make a significant, long-term impact in the lives of people who are in need. And we have the spiritual guidance to remind us why we are doing what we do. If we follow the example of Jesus, we will want for nothing.
At Lake of the Isles Lutheran Church, there are many opportunities for serving others. We continually reach out and seek opportunities to be of service to the neighborhood and the community, and our members.
One does not have to be an angel in order to be a saint. – Albert Schweitzer
