The key thought for date #2 : True love overflows with acts of kindness.
Our challenge is to commit an unexpected act of kindness for someone
you don’t know.
What better way to deliver an act of kindness than to visit a personal care home and deliver some cookies and ice cream. We will be taking the members of the youth group to spend sometime with the patients of Erdley’s Sunnyside Personal Care Home. This will be a way that the girls of the group can keep following the dates set out in Dannah Gresh’s Secret Keeper Girl. And also for the boys of the group to do an act of kindness as well. This will be a good chance for the youth group to be mindful of everything that can be learned from an older generation.
So even to old age and gray hairs, O God, do not forsake me, until I proclaim your might to another generation, your power to all those to come.
We all enjoyed our time at Erdley’s Sunnyside Personal Care Home and I think all of the patients enjoyed our time together as well. The girls of the group got to learn what it is to commit an unexpected act of kindness, and the boys of the group got a chance to also learn about giving and helping out.
