One of the best quips I heard recently regarding our DAY OF ACTION was when Raphael said something to the effect of “Even if you are a nerd like me and can’t do construction – I heard we were going to be serving food!” So, so, so hilarious and so very true!!
And once again it just goes to show that we need every single one of you to be a part of this event. Specifically – I need all you computer nerds, facetime freaks and gizmo geeks to band together and get the word out about the serving opportunity available the week of July 9-13th.
“Ye Olde Persons” – me in particular – have no idea how to promote events in this age of social media. So, if you happen to love twiddly tweets, or you are great at snapping and chatting while chewing gum, or simply like to Face-Brag……NOW is the time to do it.
We need to get the word out to everyone who wants to be a part of the DAY OF ACTION to get on-line and fill out an application with Servants, Inc. This is the group that is organizing the week of service in York City – we are partnering with them because they have the expertise (that I lack) to get the right tools and equipment to the right job site! Their website is Servants.org and they just need information related to your skills and the times that you might be available so that they can coordinate and organize the activities for the week.
And the rest of you…..those whose skill set with technology is as extinct at the dinosaurs….I need you to pray. We need you to lift this project up in prayer and ask God to bring us together in a big way as we serve our neighbors in need. I can’t think of a better way to show York that we can make big changes when we Love God, Love people and Take action.
“Lord, teach me to be generous. Teach me to serve you as you deserve. To give and not to count the cost. To fight and not to heed the wounds. To toil and not to seek for rest. To labor and not to ask for reward. Save that of knowing that I am doing your will.” Saint Ignatius of Loyola
