To each one the manifestation of the 
Spirit is given for the common good. - 1 Corinthians 12:7 (NIV)

My sister, Bev, is a retired English as a Second Language (ESL) teacher, and I am a retired nurse. We have recently 
become involved in meeting the needs of refugees. Trying to meet their needs can be hard work, but we remember that we are following Jesus by serving others....

Today's Prayer
Thank you, God, for giving us gifts and talents. Help us to use them to honor you. Amen.

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
