My brother, pastor of Oakleaf Church has the right idea. He is encouraging everyone he knows to volunteer. He has created a blog that provides a list of opportunities. And the best part is it isn’t just local needs. He has provided a list of around the world needs (click on the “around the world” link at the top of the page) that anyone could participate in. I am going to participate in the Tom Shoes and Letters for Soilders myself. So, get into the spirit. Take a few minutes of your time and help lift someones spirit. It will make all the difference in the world.
