Sunday, September 13th Day #1 of “God’s work, Our hands” Week
God's Work, Our Hands!
Dear St. Luke Friends,
Day #1: Sunday, September 13, 2020
Launching God’s Work, Our Hands Week!
Learn, Grow, Serve – Can We Set Aside an Hour a Day to serve God and our Neighbors?
WHY GOD’S WORK-OUR HANDS MATTERS?
Love of Neighbor is central to our Discipleship!
BIBLE VERSE OF THE DAY:
Phillipians 2:4-8 (Click here to read full scripture)
Reflection: “We’re all in this together” is only good news if we’re looking after one
another! The early Christian community was taught this truth in the admonition,
“Let each of you look not to your own interests, but to the interests
of others. Let the same mind be in you that was in Christ Jesus”…
Start small, learn more, invest yourself!
