As a life group, we are designating the fourth Sunday of each month to meet and eat for lunch after church. You don't have to make a reservation, but we will coordinate a casual restaurant (with plenty of high chairs) where you order when you get there, sit, eat, and can feel free to move around and visit the different people who come.

This Sunday: Rosa's Cafe

Follow Up on Compassion and A Resource

Hope everyone's week is going well. I wanted to follow up on our discussion this past Sunday morning and more concisely drive home the main point: if we say we trust Jesus for our salvation, then our response is one of outward love and compassion. We are to love God (Matt. 22:37), we are to love others (Matt. 22:39), and we are to love our enemies (Matt. 5:43-47). We talked this past week that disciples of Jesus are most known by their love for one another (John 13:34-35). More specifically, the most evident work of faith in us is our compassion toward the least of our brothers and sisters in Christ (Matt. 25:31-46).

Though the Matthew passage we covered this past week dealt more specifically for our outward expression of love and compassion for needs of our fellow Christians, but we are encouraged throughout scripture to assist the poor, sick, orphaned, and widowed, among others. I hope each of us individually identify this as something that we need to be doing and that as a group we can encourage and challenge each other to give of our time and money as a result of the faith in Jesus that we have.

Also, I know there was some discussion about being able to research organizations so that we can be better stewards of our resources, specifically money. Charity Navigator is the website that I mentioned as just one resource that I know is out there.

If you know of any other resources for researching charitable organizations, or if you know of any reputable organizations that are extending God's glory globally, feel free to leave in the comments here or on facebook.
