|My most recent attempt at a "creative way"...|
Carrying in food seems to be the popular go-to-first action. My problem is that I'm a miserable cook. At the very least, I lack confidence.
What to do? How to support? How to show my love and concern?
Jacquelyn's brother is one of those relatives of friends who is suffering. At his blog, in a January 7, 2012 report, he tells of an opportunity he had to speak to his church about his experience. He says, "I strongly encouraged the congregation to realize that life can change suddenly and dramatically. There are no guarantees for health (etc etc) for any of us. I also wanted people to know that in the Body of Christ when one member hurts....all hurt and when one member rejoices....all rejoice. Please take this to heart and be fully engaged in your local fellowship and find creative ways to serve those who are in pain."
I want to be "fully engaged".
I'll keep trying to find creative ways to serve those who are in pain.
Any suggestions (besides food)?
