We know that all of us are going to have to be more diligent about locking doors and checking in building - always in pairs, please. Safety and protecting children is a high priority. But often there is no real danger and most of the time someone hurting and needing care which we may or may not be able to give. All this mixed up with a new pastor who doesn't know the services available yet. It is a good problem to face and I think we will find God in lots of places as we struggle with the questions.
Ted Rule for the Spiritual Journey #764 Open your heart wherever there is someone in trouble, always let it in, never grow callous to the needs of those around us, but But BUT only do what God calls us to do. There are more needs in the world than we can ever solve, but Jesus calls us to live in compassion -- ALWAYS. Whatever answers Christians have to give in the world come compassionate, risking hearts. But, we can't do everything. Which leads us straight to the question: what does God want us to do? Good thing for Trustees to discern wouldn't you say.
What do you think we should do?
