Reaching Out – Blessing the Shut-Ins

Enjoy this excerpt from the February issue of The Family Forum newsletter

There are many nursing homes and retirement lodgings in our towns and cities.  Maybe you know someone who lives in one of those places.  Maybe you don’t.  It’s easy to get to know someone who lives there – just ask your church for a name.

Whether you bless one person or 100 people, connect with those in your community who are shut-in and closed-off from the world.

If you have trouble coming up with ideas, ask the homes what you can do for them.

Try to repeat the process every month or two, and bring the children along if possible.  Children have a tendency to bring joy with them wherever they go!
