Further Action

Worship is important. Deeply important. It centers us. It can change our hearts. Worship is also not enough. As John Wesley reminded us, “Do all the good you can. By all the means you can. In all the ways you can. In all the places you can. At all the times you can. To all the people you can. As long as ever you can.” That is why we invite you on September 18th to follow your worship service with some tangible action. The action does not necessarily need to happen that day. We have a number of suggestions to help you plan. If you feel overwhelmed, don’t. Start small. Something is always better than nothing.
