“…you have done it to me.”

The cartoonist's homepage, pnj.com/opinion

The sad reality is that the Evangelical Right, piously lifting their praise this morning. are the ones who would be reporting Jesus to the authorities tomorrow. So many have never learned the Gospel messages of “love your neighbor as yourself,” and “as you have done it to the least of these, you have done it to me.”

good, but troubling, information

I, being an official member of the older adult category, cannot let information such as this get away without a comment or two. This information isn’t new to me, but I feel it might be for some.

Having recently concluded three years as a pastor of an elderly congregation (average age of 83), I have seen this firsthand. It’s not a pretty picture.

All of us would do well to pay attention to the seniors in our lives. They are many small things we can do to help ease their struggles, but it starts with awareness.

Care and respect for the elderly among us is a tradition most of believe in, and rightfully so. What can you do to ease the hardship of an older friend or family member during this Christmas season?

the true spirit of Christmas

Merry Christmas to all!

Thanks to Mike Nelson Program Manager of our Richmond, Virginia office for sharing this photo taken at a meal packaging event done on Christmas Eve at Peninsula Community Chapel. Their gift to the Christ child was to package 70,000 meals for hungry children. That’s the true spirit of Christmas.

May this most special day and this entire holiday season be blessed with lots of love and laughter for you, and may each of you remember that the true work of Christmas goes on throughout the year. Working together we can celebrate Christmas all year long as we strive for a world without hunger.
