DIACONAL LEADERSHIP: Devotion #6: Practical help

There may be different places to serve, and some may ask us to go outside of our comfort zone. We must be thorough –not only looking to immediate needs, but thinking deeper about the injustices that contribute to the context. We must also think about longer-term solutions for the people to whom we show compassion. And there may be an “innkeeper” whose partnership will help, when it is beyond our capacity to respond further.
