Friends of The Good Shepherd,

I hope all is well with you and that you are continuing to experience and share each day the love and compassion of God in your life.

On Sunday, we will hear from the Letter of James:
“What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if you say you have faith but do not have works? Can faith save you? If a brother or sister is naked and lacks daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and eat your fill,” and yet you do not supply their bodily needs, what is the good of that? So faith by itself, if it has no works, is dead.”

These are powerful words and an important reminder that what we do is as important as what we say we believe. Let’s live our faith one smile, one word of encouragement, one listening moment, one outreach ministry, one act of kindness at a time. We can do this as individuals and as a faith community.

On Sunday afternoon beginning at 4:30 we will have an opportunity to gather with other churches in Wareham to celebrate the many ways we live our faith through our outreach ministries. The Celebration will take place here at Good Shepherd. Please plan to participate as we recognize and celebrate our faith in action.

See you Sunday! 

 

Peace!   Pastor Dan
