Knowing People By Their Heart

There is a degree of truth to the old admonition that while we may doubt someone’s words, we can always know them by their actions. That is true… most of the time.

I think we could all agree that there are the actions we wish to be known for, acts of selfless service, us at our humble best. And there are those actions as well that we wish were expunged from memory altogether. We certainly would not want to be judged there, when at our worst, we hurt ourselves or others.

So there must be a “seeing” beyond just actions. What might that be? It is seeing – with God’s help – someone’s heart.

Over the past 10 days, it has been a joy visiting with many congregants in many settings, both online and in-person. Our church stretches to many places; this week, no different, as we enjoyed connections with Western Canada, Georgia, California, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Florida, Michigan, New York, New Jersey et al.

Through all those connections – a beautiful reminder that while it is wonderful indeed to know what someone does, it is even more wonderful to know what they love!

“Life received from the Lord is the life of love towards the entire human race.”

Emanuel Swedenborg, Secrets of Heaven 6467

Community Service

Beef Donation *UPDATE*

Thank you to everyone who contributed. We were able to raise over $300 towards this cause. The meat is being picked up and distributed by Deneen and Frank through Helping Hands Northeast. The meat supports many organizations and is a welcome need for these organizations who often do not have access to high quality meat.

NewChurch LIVE will also be matching the donations collected and sending a contribution to Heifer International to support global poverty eradication efforts around the world.

THANK YOU to this amazing congregation!

Help children start off the school year right with all the back to school supplies! Items can be dropped off locally at our office, ordered and delivered, or you can use the Amazon wish list button above to make things even easier!
