Good news. I will be volunteering as a Life Coach again, at the Good News Community Health Center in Portland, Oregon (www.goodnewschc.org) . This is a non-profit Christian medical clinic providing excellent physical, mental, and spiritual care to the underserved with the love of Christ. What a wonderful opportunity to serve the community. I want to be the hands of Jesus, helping women find restoration and purpose in life.

Compassion: The spiritual response of Christ followers in the face of suffering is compassion. Compassion is an outward acknowledgement of God’s mercy for us, and a rehearsal of Christ’s suffering on our behalf. In that way, compassion is unnatural, uncomfortable, and costly (Psalm 72, Isaiah 58, Micah 6, Mark 1, Luke 10, John 15, Philippians 2).

Volunteering a few hours a week shows compassion to others. Besides, it’s good for our soul . . . a great start for our day. Where could you serve others? You are urgently needed.
