For this month’s Act of Kindness I’ve started an act to coincide with Lent. Something close to my heart is pastoral care. With Sean growing up as a pastor’s kid, I’ve developed a greater sense of gratitude for everything church staff members do. They are often spiritually and physically on-call at all hours to serve the members of the congregation. They end up working some long, hard and unconventional hours. And, they do all of this with such passion and care.
I want to make sure the staff at my church know we’re grateful for all of the hard work they put in, so for the feast day’s of Lent I like to make them a little extra treat. I also try to include a little note expressing our gratitude. It’s nothing hard or big, but I hope it brings them a smile.
I’m excited carry this act through till Easter and I’m in the process of brainstorming new ideas for April. Have you done something kind for others that you’d like to share? I’d love to share it here on the blog, so just let me know!
