This year our church celebrates 175 years. That’s quite a long time, and quite an achievement when you consider many churches are closing their doors. As part of the celebrations, the church is asking its members to carry out random acts of kindness.
Now, they are random to the person who is receiving the kindness… But actually, I like to say they’re purposeful. We are purposefully sharing kindness and hope to those around us.
As many of you will know, I became unemployed in December, when my teaching contract came to an end. Plus, I’m on the long, enjoyable roller coaster of emotions that is maternity leave, and I’m trying to set an example to my daughter from as young as possible. So, me and my daughter will be attempting to undertake as many of the 175 suggestions as we can. We will be doing it purposefully, and we will be doing it loudly. I’ll keep you in the loop and let you know how we get on.
Be purposeful. Be kind. Be generous.
