“Remember what Christ taught, and let his words enrich your lives and make you wise;” Colossians 3:16a
Winter is the season of contagions, isn’t it? We are susceptible to colds, flu, and viruses. And this year, the additional scare of the Coronavirus has everyone in a heightened sense of alertness.
Often we don’t think about our faith being contagious too. Yet, when we read the scriptures, we see lives drastically changed after people encounter Jesus Christ! They caught what he was teaching and many, like Matthew, Zacchaeus, and Mary Magdalene changed the focus of their lives from themselves to care and compassion for others.
In simple terms, compassion and care are highly contagious, but they can be caught only by direct contact with someone who has them. If you have Jesus in your heart, go touch someone who needs to become infected with the love of Jesus Christ. This group meets the third Thursday of every month at 10:00am in the Fireside room. Anyone who desires to send cards, call, or visit is welcome to join us!<
