God's Hands and Feet

By: Barb Hartness


Why do I do what I do?

Because I believe I am part of the body of Christ. And, I believe anything I can do, no matter how small, is being God’s hands and God’s feet.

I enjoy working with the elderly and always have. I feel I was given the ability to relate, to care, and especially to listen to our elders’ needs and concerns. I love delivering communion to our care connections recipients. As Pastor Ryan recently stated in a sermon, coming forward for communion is walking towards Jesus. When I deliver this sacrament to someone who desires to receive it, I am blessed as much as the recipient. It feels like completion to my act of going forward only minutes before to receive. The circle becomes whole. Giving and receiving from and to other members of Christ’s body. That is why I do what I do: I receive and I am called to give.
