A Word of Encouragement from Ragland, Pastoral Intern.
This pandemic has given us another opportunity to show kindness, compassion and love to our neighbours. Kindness is not an emotion or a feeling, Kindness is "Love in Action". It is the practical expression of Love.
We are called to show kindness because we have been shown kindness; we are called to love and show compassion in this time of crisis, because we are shown God's immeasurable love in our deepest despair. We have been shown the most amazing and expensive act of kindness in Jesus.
John 13:35-35 "I give you a new commandment, just as I have loved you You also should love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples."
Titus 3: 4-5 "But when the kindness and love of God our Saviour appeared, he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy."
