Christ has no hands in the world but ours — so we as the Body of Christ are called to carry word of his love, not only with our lips but in our lives. These many opportunities to make a difference are our chance to live into the Great Commandment — that we should love God with all of our heart and love our neighbors as ourselves. The Book of Common Prayer describes the duty of every Christian as working, praying, and giving for the spread of the Kingdom of God — a Kingdom of loving peace. We hope that you will look at these opportunities and consider how you might share with us as we strive to live into that duty to work for the Kingdom together.
