It’s the season of Thanksgiving.
It’s the time when we ask “What makes me thankful?”
But this year we also asked, “What makes the people who rely on Good Shepherd Ministries thankful?”
So we spoke to Christine Slater, Manager of Pastoral Care. You can find her most days of the week helping in the morning drop-in, or greeting guests at 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. meal.
This week someone in the food line said to me “Thank you for loving us without judging us.”
It matters to people that we meet them where they’re at, not where we’d like them to be – or think they should be.
We run into trouble when we think we can ‘fix’ things for people, when one of the most important things we can do for them is just to be here for them.
When you’re counting up your blessings this Thanksgiving remember the people who love you without judging you. And if you can’t think of anyone like that in your life – come on down to Good Shepherd Ministries. You’ll be most welcome!
