Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
An older lady came to our Love INC office one morning looking confused. She had an appointment at
a medical office, but had left the paper with the name of the place and its address on her kitchen
counter. She could not remember any of the information. We worked patiently with her to determine the nature of the appointment. We, then, telephoned all the possible places in our area, asking each one if our lady had an appointment with their office. Finally we found the correct office! However, we feared that our lost lady would have great difficulty getting to her destination and would likely get lost again! A staff member instructed the woman to follow her vehicle and drove ever so slowly to the medical office leading the way. She was at her appointment!
Thomas, the doubter, said to the Lord, "Lord, we don't know where you are going, so how can we know
the way??" Jesus' reply was gentle, "I AM the way!"
Many people around us do not know the way to God. We are the ones who must light the path to God
by a life that is loving and non-judgmental. "Preach the gospel and if necessary, use words*!"
(*This phrase may have come from St. Francis, but has been used widely by many others in various forms.)

Love in the Name of Christ
