Todays message from the bulletin:
Mourn too, with those who suffer:
with the sick, the lonely and depressed
with the anxious and those who have no friends
with the apparent failures of the world.
Be aware of them, care for them as best you can,
suffer with them, pray with them, weep with them.
Such real compassion brings its own reward,
of acceptance, trust and healing.
Give, and there will be gifts for you:
a full measure, pressed down,
shaken together, and running over,
will be poured in your lap;
because the amount you measure out
is the amount you will be given back.
