Join us for Easter Morning Prayer
Our journey into service is nurtured with small steps. We can practice putting the needs of others, especially those close to us, before our own. We can offer to do some menial job at home without been asked, like taking out the trash or doing the dishes. We can ask a colleague at work if he or she needs help. If we only look around, we will see endless possibilities for service that inspire our creativity and imagination—and, perhaps, ask us to step outside our comfort zones.

Let us consider each other carefully for the purpose of sparking love and good deeds.
