Being led by God’s Hand

By Doug Boyce

For the Sixth Sunday of Easter, Fr. Bill shared his sermon We Are in this Together, where he asked several parishioners to share a brief encounter, an image, or a feeling that relates to the following passage: I will not leave you orphaned; I am coming to you. In a little while the world will no longer see me, but you will see me; because I live, you also will live. On that day you will know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you. They who have my commandments and keep them are those who love me; and those who love me will be loved by my Father, and I will love them and reveal myself to them. (John 14:15-20)

Forgotten Harvest is a meaningful name describing both the “forgotten” food and supplies (the harvest) that would have been discarded had they not been collected for distribution to the needy and often “forgotten” and abandoned, almost “orphaned”, in society in volunteering for Forgotten Harvest I feel like I’m being led by God’s hand to distribute to, to help and remember the forgotten and abandoned among us – who are always so thankful in what they are receiving.

Matthew 25:40
“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.”
