caroling

Volunteering – Part 2

Last night we went caroling with our youth group. We visited mostly people from our church, but we also hit a few neighbors of one of our leaders. It was fun and I think it meant a lot to the people whose houses we visited. It also worked out that we got bring along our little ones! They had a good time, I think.

In my last post I mentioned we were looking for ways to get the whole family involved in a project. Though caroling wasn’t exactly what I had in mind, I think it was certainly a good project for all of us to be involved with. Anything that we can do to show care for other people is way to show and act out that Christmas isn’t just about ourselves. What better way to acknowledge Christ’s service of coming to this earth to empathize with us as we navigate this complicated place than to serve others and show that they are cared for?
