Dr. Beckwith’s Friday Inspiration For September 7th

Happy Friday, LSSSC Family,

As we gather for another Friday reflection, I want to draw inspiration from the profound wisdom of the Bible. In Ecclesiastes 11:4, it is written, “Farmers who wait for perfect weather never plant. If they watch every cloud, they never harvest.”

This scripture reminds us of the inherent value of taking risks. Just as farmers must sow their seeds despite uncertainty, we, too, must embrace the challenge of uncertainty in our mission to serve others. The seeds we sow are acts of kindness, compassion, and service to our community.

At LSSSC, we’ve always believed in the power of taking calculated risks. Through these daring steps, we’ve expanded our reach and made a difference in countless lives. We’ve weathered storms and overcome obstacles because we believe in the importance of our mission.

Remember that every act of kindness, every leap of faith we take, can yield a bountiful harvest of hope and transformation for those we serve. Our commitment to making a positive impact should always remain the same, regardless of the uncertainties that may lie ahead.

As we head into the weekend, let us embrace the spirit of courage, knowing that our work is a testament to our faith and that our efforts have the potential to change lives in remarkable ways.

Thank you for your unwavering dedication to our mission. May your faith guide you, your compassion drives you, and your courage inspires you.

Ambassadors are short-term volunteers who open doors for our organization in the community, introducing new people at our bi-monthly Fostering Community Care event. These are one hour awareness events only (no solicitations are made) to expose people to the great work of LSS Community Care. To become an Ambassador here are your responsibilities:
  1. 1 – Attend at least one Fostering Community Care event during the calendar year
  2. 2 – Host or invite and bring 10-15 guests to one Fostering Community Care event within 3 months of your attending one yourself.
  3. 3 – Inform your invited guests of what the Fostering Community Care meeting will be about, and let them know that they will receive a follow up call from the organization
  4. 4 – Ambassadors will complete their commitment after bringing 10-15 persons within the 3 month time period. An Ambassador has the option to complete after one term, continue for another 3 month term or move into another role on the team.
