As part of our celebration of the 100th year of St. Luke’s, we’re recording 100 Acts of Kindness by the congregation. What a fun idea to kick off our Anniversary year! There is a tree in the narthex with “kindness leaves” attached.
Why are we doing this? We are fulfilling our Christian teaching to love one another and are encouraging others.
“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
Acts of Kindness are:
- Good deeds that can be in the community or at St. Luke’s Church. They can be one-time or ongoing. Even a small gesture can be meaningful.
- A few examples include:
- Assisting neighbors, friends, family or strangers
- Donating time, work, or funds for others personally or through charities
- Greeting others with a smile or letting others ahead of you in line
- Participating in St. Luke’s Ministries (see the Ministry handbook for ideas!)
- Many service projects are really acts of kindness, like packing at FMSC, serving at Loves and Fishes, delivering for Meals on Wheels, etc.
There are so many opportunities to help or encourage others, we’d love to add yours!
- Briefly describe your Act of Kindness on the leaf provided
- No names please, just the Act of Kindness
- Attach to the tree with a sticky dot
