At this point we are in the midst of what is known as the Season of Giving. Host Kris Halterman will interview the Executive Director of the Lighthouse Mission Ministries about their efforts to combat homelessness. What is the purpose of the Lighthouse Mission? What are the origins of the Mission? What programs do they offer to help the down and out to give them a future of hope? What role does our community play in helping the homeless?
It’s all too easy to get so caught up in the good feelings of the season that we lose sight of the point: giving is not about good feelings! The fact that our charity is seasonal should be a source of shame, not pride. I’m not talking about donating money here – that’s a fine thing to do, but it’s on a whole other level. I’m talking about real, person-to-person giving, about really reaching out and helping our fellow human beings, about enriching others’ lives without worrying about enriching our own. ~ Dustin Wax, Lifehack.org
