“Sunday Thoughts”


habitat960x400

Tuesday, November 28th is #GivingTuesday. As we finish our Thanksgiving Weekend and move into the Christmas Season of Peace on Earth and Goodwill Towards our Fellow Man, we have a chance to give back to our communities with financial help or a gift of our time.  We have so much to be thankful for, and we should not just count our blessings, but provide blessings to our brothers and sisters of humanity. It will be a gift to them, as well as to ourselves.

Today’s “Sunday Thoughts” is all about volunteerism. We begin with this uncredited advice, “Volunteering is the ultimate exercise in democracy.  You vote in elections once a year, but when you volunteer, you vote every day about the kind of community you want to live in.”

“Wherever a man turns he can find someone who needs him.”

–Albert Schweitzer

“Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they just have the heart.”

–Elizabeth Andrew

“Volunteers don’t get paid, not because they’re worthless, but because they’re priceless.”

–Sherry Anderson

“We celebrate the selfless individuals around our country who channel their civic virtues through volunteerism… devoted to a cause bigger than themselves…. Volunteers help drive our country’s progress, and day in and day out, they make extraordinary sacrifices to expand promise and possibility.”

–Barack Obama; April 8th, 2016
