Perspectives from the Field: Service

The other day a friend asked why I help others.  I responded that it is a question of HOW to help others, not WHETHER to help others.

Reflecting on this conversation, this is something that we need to share with youth.  God calls us to be His hands and feet and to love one another.   This can come in many forms but it is important to find ways to serve others, whether in our own community or on the other side of the world.

How do YOU serve and what are you teaching youth about service?
