Sarah has been furloughed due to the coronavirus pandemic. She has no money for Sunday’s collection, but she gives what she can—her time and compassion.

Ralph lives below the poverty level, but every week he mows the lawns of two disabled veterans.
Horace spends several nights a month at the bedsides of hospitalized members of his church, enabling exhausted family members to go home and get some needed rest.

You can give without loving,
but you can’t love without giving.
