Once a man asked Jesus “who is my neighbor?” (Luke 10:25-37) Jesus answered, essentially, that we should show love and care and mercy to everyone our lives come in contact with, just as He shows love and care and mercy to us. That starts with the person next to you–your family member, co-worker, or the person who lives across the street. But it doesn’t end there….
“Imagine a world where every little girl owned at least one dress.” That’s the invitation for a growing project called Dress a Girl Around the World. Recently a group of women from Saint Columba Church heard that challenge–and accepted. Sponsored by the Anglican Church Women (ACW), about a dozen ladies gathered and learned how to turn a pillow-case into a simple but attractive dress for a little girl who may never have owned one.
Along the way, we caught some photographic evidence of these “neighbors in action.”
